|| SYNOPSIS || Counterattack -- Book III -- launches The Corps into hardcover with a story that sweeps from the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor to America's first bold counterstrike against the Japanese on the beaches of Guadalcanal. It is the story of the men of the Marine Corps, their loves and loyalties, of an elite fraternity united by a tradition of courage and honor; as they enter the battle that will determine control of the Pacific.
Among them: daredevil pilot Charles Galloway, whose feats put him in the military doghouse -- until the brass needs him back again...PFC Stephen Koffler, all of eighteen years old, and about to get his first real taste of war...Lieutenant Joe Howard, whose experiences at Pearl Harbor leave a memory he must desperately try to erase...Captain Jack "No Middle Initial" Stecker, who reminds people what a real Medal of Honor winner is all about...shipping magnate and ex-Marine Fleming Pickering, who goes undercover to report on MacArthur's war in the Pacific...and dozens of others, from China Marine "Killer" McCoy and Ellen Feller, the "missionary lady" with a gun in her purse, to William Donovan, Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox, and FDR himself.
From Washington, D.C., to the Philippines, Pensacola to Australia, old faces and new -- generals, colonels, privates, sweethearts and wives -- find themselves with the challenge of their lives: to defend...to dream...to love and to win.
Filled with crackling realism and adventure, rich characters, real heroes, and that special flair for the military heart and mind that has made Griffin's novels so popular, Counterattack is a dramatic, captivating novel of love, loyalty, and valor, sure to please old fans and new.
