I read this book about 16-Dec-2001. I've read this book before. The book is copyright 1992. This note was last modified Saturday, 03-May-2014 21:13:57 PDT.
This is book 5 of the "The Corps" series.
This note does not contain major spoilers for the book.
Griffin's Marine series has turned into a bunch of overlapping standalones, and I remember some stuff too well, and other stuff not well enough, to find this as satisfactory. But each book tell one story arc pretty well, and they're all fascinating stories. The part I have trouble with is that they overlap in time heavily, and that always confuses me.
This one is a rescue mission for some marines working with the Australian Coastwatchers (who were inserted in a previous book). Good dirty disease-ridden violent fun. Heavy alcohol consumption, too, and remarkably little reference to smoking.
