Description
Under Fire by W.E.B. Griffin
After the epic struggle of World War II, WEB. Griffin's bestselling chronicle of the Marine Corps enters a new stage of modern warfare -- with new weapons, new strategies, and a new breed of warrior -- on the battlefields of Korea...

In 1950, Captain Ken McCoy's report on North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that he is promptly booted out of the Corps -- and just as promptly picked up by the fledgling CIA. Soon, his predictions come true: On June 25, the North Koreans invade across the 38th parallel. Immediately, veterans scattered throughout military and civilian life are called up, many with only seventy-two hours notice. For these men and their families, names such as Inchon and Pusan will acquire a new, bloody reality -- and become their greatest challenge of all...
