I love Mr Griffin's books, especially the ones about WWII. His Corps books are excellent and The Call to Arms is one off his better ones, if that is possible. He provides the history of the moment while using fiction to bring the story alive. I highly recommend this book.

Some parts of this book were difficult to read because my father served in the Pacific during WWII. There are two primary stories within this book that begins with remnants of Pearl Harbor, touches on the fall of the Philipines and highlights the odd but unique friendship of Ken McCoy and Macolm Pickering and those supporting staff that connections the two parts of the war in the Pacific. . The first story continues the quest of Pick to become a fighter pilot and finds himself roommated with Dick Stecker- second son of Jack NMI. Dick's elder brother, Jack jr, was on the Arizona, leaving Dick with his military life insurance. The two create another odd couple friendship inspite of one who is "by the book" and one who adheres to "if it isn't prohibited, its approved". The second portion outlining the development of Capt Roosevelt and Col Carlson to create the Marine Rangers. For those who read the first Series of Mr. Griffin, Brotherhood of War, it strikes an earlier version of the difficulties in Creating the Green Berets. Seems not even the military learns from its own history. Within the two stories we learn that the Marines really were like a large family and both groups-McCoys intelligence and Picks fighter pilots- have family and long time friends intermixed. In the development of conflict regarding the Marine Raiders, the COI is involved and McCoy is sent to eval & assess. Ernie travels with Ken to San Diego and sets up housekeeping on a boat owned by one of the Pickering family friends. The boat becomes the one "no man's land" where enlisted and officers can mix and chat. Enter into the mix in San Diego, Sgt- now Gunny Zimmerman younger McCoy brother, Jack NM Stecker and the return of Banning and Sessions to the fold. COI is the precurser to the OSS with handlers Banning and Rickerbee under Gen. Forrest. There will be elements similiar to Sandy Felter, and DPs [ Direction of the President] and by-passing the regular army/Navy command involved as with the Brotherhood of War series, that is sure to make the reading interesting.

This is the second installment in Griffin's "The Corps" series, and if anything it is better than the first. Killer McCoy and Pick Pickering really fill out as complex and very different characters, as do many of the other characters in this story. The storyline itself is fascinating and gripping. If you like novels about life in the armed forces during wartime you really cannot do better than this series and The Brotherhood of War series (also by Griffin).

This story is set just after Pearl Harbor in the early days of the Pacific War. As Griffin often does, he displays a deep knowledge of Marine Corps politics and culture, which makes for a fascinating and page-turning novel. Highly recommended. RJB.

Earlier in life I read the collection "Brotherhood of War." I enjoyed it, however, I found that the excitment lessened as the ranks of the characters increased. After the army series, I tried the series on the Philiadelphia police, but couldn't keep with it. I then tried "The Corps", but with same results, so I went to other authors. A few months back, a friend of mine gave me his copy of "Retreat, Hell!", to read. He said that he had a hard time putting it down. I read it, liked it, and started the 'Corps' series again.
I guess perspective changes as you get older, or you read at a slower pace and see little things that are missed in the haste of younger years. Anyway, I am enjoying it, and I am reading from real paper with print on it. I like Giffin's mode of carrying the characters through the years. He also makes me want to review pictures of the military equipment mentioned in the pages of the book.

Giffin's books reminds me of TAylor Anderson's books on destroyer-men in that he moves the same characters through different volumes.

Excellent historical fiction with several noticeable military and continuity errors. For example, rank of Lance Corporal was not used by Corps during WWII but used in book one of series; Thompson fires from open bolt position but in several instances author has character operating bolt to insert cartridge in breech; officer and enlisted serial numbers do not follow established patterns and one main character morphs through three first names. In spite of those errors (blame the editor for not catching) the book is entertaining and captures good sense of mundane daily life in the Corps. Recommend that potential readers start with book one of the 10 book series and read them in order.

Waste of time. I didn't understand the point of this book. 330 pages of character development and (maybe) 10 pages of action. But, there is no depth to the characters and the plot is what? The entire book could have been condensed into 50 pages and made part another book with a better developed plot line and, frankly, story. If you've never read a W.E.B. Griffin book, don't start with this one or you'll never read another.

For my taste it was short on military history, and issues and long on romantic relationships. Not what I personally wanted.
I have read this book series at least 7 times and still enjoy it. Its even better now hearing it while I drive and relive those feelings all over again. Just love Audible!
