|| SYNOPSIS || Behind the Lines is the big new Corps novel from the man who "rates among the best storytellers in any genre." (Phoenix Gazette) Through six books, W.E.B. Griffin's bestselling chronicle of the Marine Corps has proven itself to be one of the country's most enduring and popular series. But in Behind the Lines, Griffin has given us his most dramatic story yet.
On the island of Mindanao, a man calling himself "General" Fertig has set himself up as a guerrilla leader to harass the Japanese. Army records show that the only officer name Fertig in the Philippines is a reserve lieutenant colonel of the Corps of Engineers, reported MIA on Luzon, but still, the reports filtering out are interesting, and it's Marine lieutenant Ken McCoy's mission to sneak behind the lines and find out if he's for real.
With him is a motley group put together as a compromise between the warring factions of Douglas MacArthur and OSS chief Bill Donovan: veteran Marine gunnery sergeant Ernest Zimmermann; OSS captain R.B. Macklin, a bully who has managed to fail ever upward; submariner Navy lieutenant Chambers D. Lewis; and Marine staff sergeant Stephen Koffler.
Together, these men will steal into the heart of enemy territory and there, amid firefights and jungle camps, encounter more than they had bargained for. Before they're done, each will undergo a test of his own personal mettle -- with results that will surprise even the most hardened of them.
As always, this new novel is filled with crackling realism and adventure, rich characters, real heroes, and that special flair for the military heart and mind that make Griffin's novels so loved. It is further proof, as Tom Clancy says, that "W.E.B. Griffin is a storyteller in the grand tradition."
