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....

“For some of us, reading The Corps series is like eating popcorn at the movies: you can never eat just one kernel, and you can never get enough. Griffin captures the smell of the smoke of battle as vividly as if one were on the beach at Guadalcanal.” (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
“This man has really done his homework.... I confess to impatiently awaiting the appearance of succeeding books in the series.” (The Washington Post)
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
I bought three and read two in the series before I realized it's just a war-themed soap opera. It was interesting enough to have me buy up through the third in the series, but I'm done. I liked the narration/voices except when he tried to do women. Speaking of which, the 'hero' is always trying to do women. That got a bit old. Overall, I only recommend this series if you like soap operas.
I enjoyed the story and the narration! I thought the narrator did a good job when he spoke the female parts, instead of sounding comical!
I'm really beginning to like the corpa series from WEB Griffin. Story is excellent, the characters are memorable, and it is easy to really get into the story. Some of the administrative stuff is a little doll, but that probably is consistent with what real military life is like. Great book. Highly recommended.
I have read and have listened to all of the books in this series. Although everyone has their own opinion. I think it is an outstanding series with well developed characters.
being an Army Vet. I absolutely am fascinated by these books. I first started with the brotherhood of war series and being a former aviator enjoyed it more. If you want to read books and like me dont have time then listen to these good stuff.

Plot and intertwining of characters along with facts mixed with fiction, all add up to great listening entertainment as you roll down the highway.
