|| SYNOPSIS || With Battleground, W. E. B. Griffin continued his remarkable series of best-selling novels about the Marine Corps. "The Corps combines the best elements of 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."
And now Line of Fire -- Book V -- brings the saga of the Corps during World War II into a particularly valiant and bloody arena. From Guadalcanal to Parris Island to Washington, D.C., this is the story of the Marine Corps. 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, Line of Fire is a dramatic, captivating novel of love, loyalty, and value, sure to please old fans and new.
While the battle for control of the Solomons rages on, two Marines are trapped at a Coastwatcher station on tiny Buka Island. They are there to report on Japanese air activity, and their position is becoming increasingly perilous, even while their supplies are diminishing rapidly; if they are not rescued soon, they may never make it off the island alive.
On the orders of newly commissioned Marine Brigadier General Fleming Pickering, a team is assembled: Captain Charles Galloway, still recuperating from his crash into the sea...Second Lieutenant Malcolm Pickering, Fleming's son and the owner of a dangerous daredevil streak...Lieutenant Ken "Killer" McCoy, China Marine and hardened veteran...Sergeant Thomas McCoy, his brother, a man of such temper and talent that he keeps getting busted to PFC and then promoted back again...and Sergeant George Hart, the youngest detective ever on the St. Louis vice squad, tricked into military service and now determined to make his mark.
These men, and their colleagues, are about to attempt the impossible: to take the beleaguered Marines off Buka, under the very noses of the Japanese. They will have only one chance -- so they'd better get it right.
