Under Fire: The Corps Series, 9 | [W. E. B. Griffin]

Under Fire: The Corps Series, 9

Korea, June 1, 1950. Captain Ken McCoy's report on probable North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that not only is it promptly suppressed, but McCoy himself is kicked out of the Corps. At least two outfits, however, are not impressed by such infighting: the fledgling CIA, which promptly hires McCoy; and the North Koreans, who on June 25th invade across the 38th parallel.

Publisher's Summary

Korea, June 1, 1950. Captain Ken McCoy's report on probable North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that not only is it promptly suppressed, but McCoy himself is kicked out of the Corps. At least two outfits, however, are not impressed by such infighting: the fledgling CIA, which promptly hires McCoy; and the North Koreans, who on June 25th invade across the 38th parallel.

Immediately, veterans scattered throughout military and civilian life are called up, many with only seventy-two hours' notice. For Fleming Pickering and Pick, his daredevil son, and Ed Banning, George Hart, Jack Stecker, Jake Dillon, Ernie Zimmerman - and for the women who love them - names such as Inchon and Pusan will acquire a new, bloody reality, and Korea will become not only a new battlefield - but their greatest challenge of all....

    "Loved it!"

    As always a great story about the courage of the men and little known details of the fighting in the "Forgotten War". Thanks Mr Griffin

    Story
    "Ken McCoy takes back South Korea"

    McCoy and a band of former Marine Raiders and South Korean Police plan to take islands that could bombard the ships in the convoy to Inchon that will land the troops who will push the North Koreans back above the 38th parallel.

    Of course, General MacArthur takes the credit for Brig. General Pickering's plan and achievements, because he thinks he has ultimate accountability. However, Pickering works for the CIA, and is not subordinate to MacArthur.

    Great story, and almost all the way through you keep watching for Major Pickering to be rescued from North Korea, where his plane crashed after taking out another "choo-choo." Maybe he will, maybe he won't,

    I've listened to the Corps Series from the beginning as each new book was released.

    Excellent reading !!
