    The attack on Pearl Harbor swept America into the raging heart of the war. The stormy South Pacific presented a daring new challenge, and the men of the Corps were ready to fight. An elite fraternity united by a glorious tradition of courage and honor, the Marine Raiders were bound to a triumphant destiny.

    Would you try another book from W. E. B. Griffin and/or Dick Hill?

    Griffin definitely, Hill, sorry he sucks, his portrayal of the female characters is horrible, he makes them all seem weak and childish, Ernie Sage is not weak or childish.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Call to Arms?

    I just like the story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    As above, he is great on the male characters, but on the female voices he is horrible, he kept pissing me off making strong female characters come across as weak.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not, I doubt it would make a good movie.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.
