Book Note: W.E.B. Griffin, Battleground

I read this book about 2-Dec-2001. I've read this book before. The book is copyright 1990. This note was last modified Saturday, 03-May-2014 20:59:37 PDT.

This is book 4 of the "The Corps" series.

This note does not contain major spoilers for the book.


And once again we jump back in time, only a few months this time.

In Battleground, we finally get the actual Counterattack, when we take the Japanese airstrip on Guadalcanal. And we skip around most of the combat (probably reasonable); but the marines are left in an untenable position, and they prevail, and we don't see enough of the effort to value it properly.

As I said about the previous book, this series has gotten kinda diffuse and unfocused, and it's a damned shame, since the source material and the characters he has established have such potential.
