it was amazing

I served 8 years in the Marine Corps. I read this book while I was a Marine option Navy ROTC midshipman, it was the propaganda the doctor ordered. A little on the melodramatic when it comes to the romance (yeah, there are chicks in this book), I loved this book! Granted, I bought into the Esprit de Corps from a very young age, but Uris is a good writer and even my wife read and liked it (I made her when we were dating. It was sort of her test like in "Diner" :-)). I would follow up this book with:
The Great Santini (I read it in 13 hours and laughed outloud through the entire book)
Fields of Fire
A Sense of Honor
A Country Such As This

P.S. I've been shocked in the last 5-10 years by the politcal leanings of both Uris and Webb. Very disappointing, but their books have been inspirations since I was in college.
