Description
Battleground by W.E.B. Griffin
Battleground - Book IV - continues the saga of The Corps with the story of one of the epic conflicts of the Pacific, the bloody months spanning Midway and Guadalcanal. From aviators to Raiders, officers to dog soldiers, no quarter is asked, and none given, as they battle for control of the Pacific.
Daredevil pilot Charles Gallway takes command of a fighter squadron and finds his mettle severely tested...Lieutenant Joe Howard, scanning the skies as a member of the Costwatchers, send the message of his life...Officer candidate Private John Marston Moore volunteers for a mission so secret he cannot be told where it is - or what he'll be doing...Colonel Frank Goettge leads a patrol into the heart of danger, at a terrible price...Ex-Marine Fleming Pickering sets sail from the perilous waters of Washington politics to find himself deep in harm's way...
From Washington, D.C., to the Bloody Solomons to Australia, this is the story of the Marine Corps, their loves and loyalties, of an elite fraternity united by courage and honor.
