    Story

    From Shanghai to Wake Island, the Corps was America’s first line of defense as the winds of war exploded into the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This is the story of the men of the Marine Corps, their loves and loyalties, an elite fraternity united by courage and honor, as they steel themselves for battle, prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice....

    Story
    If you could sum up Semper Fi in three words, what would they be?

    keep wanting more


    What did you like best about this story?

    the development of key characters through an entire generation; a perfect blend of military history, politics, and the inner workings of what the US Military once was


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    the right guy for the right book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    On the rifle qualification when Captain Stecker dropped next to McCoy and there was a understood respect between two professional.


    Any additional comments?

    To read/listen to only this book in the series is just wrong, I have read this series so many times I can't remember, each time is as fresh as the first. Now that my eyes are not so good, listening has just made it better. Please record the remaining series in this and the Brotherhood of Arms, both great perspectives on a lost generation of the military professionals and a well developed story line.
