Summary:

World War II. On the island of Mindanao, the Philippines, a man calling himself "General" Fertig has set himself up as a guerrilla leader to harass the Japanese. Army records show that the only officer named Fertig in the Philippines is a reserve lieutenant colonel of the Corps of Engineers, reported MIA on Luzon. Still, the reports filtering out are interesting, and it''s Marine Lieutenant Ken McCoy''s mission to sneak behind the lines and find out if Fertig is for real. With McCoy is a motley group put together as a compromise between the warring factions of Douglas MacArthur and the OSS chief Bill Donovan.



Together, McCoy and his men steal into the heart of enemy territory and there, amid firefights and jungle camps, encounter more than they had bargained for. Before they''re done, each will undergo a test of his own personal mettle-with results that will surprise even the most hardened of them.

    Mr. Griffin continues to reel me in and refuses to allow me to turn away from his stories. I'd like to meet him, shake his hand and thank him for writing such a fine series on my beloved Marine Corps.

    W. E. B. Griffith has the style to get you hooked. Each book in each seperate series introduces you to new characters who come alive more and more with each successive book. No cardboard characters allowed. A real treat to have books follow the development of the main characters without loosing what makes them tick. I recommend listenning to each series in order from start to finish.

    A decent story of the starting of guerilla warfare in the Phillipines during WWII. I had some difficulty keeping track of the characters while driving. Left me wanting more.......meaning it seemed unfinished. I would have liked to hear what was done to harass the Japanese.
