Publisher's Summary

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....

What the Critics Say

“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)

    "More story than warfare"

    More training. More character development. Little combat. I feel like the balance is a bit off, in that it could use a bit more combat, but I am in the series for the long haul. I am still engaged and looking forward to what happens next. Hopefully the next review will be that the stage was set by the first two books and the War in the Pacific is now in full swing.

    Dick Hill does an impeccable job with the narration.

    Story
    "From DC to Makin Atoll"

    Lt. Ken sticks to his principles in several different scenarios, and helps the Marine Raiders invade a Japanese-held Atoll to make our enemy in the Pacific send more troops to guard the islands they hold "out there."

    Lots of things happening, but all pretty "normal" for day-to-day life. Lots of build-up for future books in the Corps Series.

    "Motivation"

    I am thoroughly enjoying the Corps Series. As I listen to the performance I keep imagining someone making an excellent movie/miniseries out of this whole series of books.

    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.

    "Soap Opera part 2"

    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.

    "Review of Call to Arms"

    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!

    "Great story!"

    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.

    "Great series"

    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.
