Synopsis

This title follows the careers of a group of young second lieutenants from their baptism of fire in Vietnam, through the Cold War, and to the current insurgency in Iraq. In Vietnam, they experienced the Tet Offensive, the siege at Khe Sanh, and the 1972 Easter Offensive. They went on to serve eyeball-to-eyeball with North Koreans in the DMZ, and later they participated in the 1983 invasion of Grenada, operations in Beirut, and Desert Storm. Some would never make it out of Vietnam alive. Some would be crippled by wounds. All would fight like tigers, and one would rise to the very top, commanding the Marine Corps they all loved. This title features: a sweeping saga of the United States Marine Corps; previously secret battles between Marine generals and Army generals Tommy Franks and Norman Schwarzkopf; inside the Pentagon on 9/11; an intriguing look at the divergent views that swirled in secret inside the Pentagon during the planning of invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq; an inside look at fight for Marines to get new and better tanks; and, one of the 'Boys' who becomes the first Marine named Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. It includes the story of Staff Sgt.

Manny Cox, who died in Beirut and is the only enlisted man to be honoured by having a building at Quantico named after him. It is first official rebuttal by a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to Tommy Franks' account in his 2004 autobiography of the way the invasion of Iraq was planned.
