The New York Times Bestselling Saga Continues…The Corps - Book IV
Battleground by WEB Griffin
With Counterattack, W. E. B. Griffin continued his remarkable series of bestselling novels about the Marine Corps. "TheCorps combines the best elements of military history and the war story," wrote Publishers Weekly, "the telling detail and political tangle of one mated to the energy and sweep of the other" -- military fiction at its finest.
And now Battleground -- Book IV -- continues the saga of The Corps with the story of one of the epic conflicts of the Pacific, the bloody months spanning Midway and Guadalcanal. From aviators to Raiders, officers to dog soldiers, no quarter is asked, and none given, as they battle for control of the Pacific.
