Under Fire by W.E.B. Griffin
Captain Ken McCoy‘s report on North Korean hostilities in 1950 is met with such bureaucratic disapproval that he is swiftly discharged from the Corps—and snatched up by the embryonic CIA. His prophecies come true soon after: on June 25th, North Koreans cross the 38th parallel. Veterans from all walks of life, both military and civilian, are immediately summoned, often with just 72 hours’ notice.
Names like Inchon and Pusan will take on a new, bloody meaning for these soldiers and their families, and will become their toughest battle yet. Under Fire by W.E.B. Griffin is written under the new scheme and new weapons of war.
Griffin’s newest, Under Fire begins on the Korean peninsula, where Communist North Korean soldiers had just crossed the 38th Parallel. After President Truman returns Brig. Gen. Fleming Pickering from the direction of Trans Global Airways to fill the CIA’s top Asian post, the original team reassembles in a matter of weeks.
Pickering attempts to restore Washington’s trust in Comdr. Douglas MacArthur and his audacious proposal to attack at Inchon as the US Army fights to control the North. Meanwhile, a fresh disaster strikes when Capt. Ken McCoy and Master Gunner Ernie Zimmerman lurk behind enemy lines, taking a vital island in preparation for the invasion:
Daredevil pilot Malcolm (“Pick”) Pickering is shot down over a North Korean rice field. Griffin—who fought in the army in Korea—sets up the historical underpinnings of the fight and puts all of his characters in this new installment of the series, which goes more slowly than earlier installments. However, once he gets going, he writes with even more ease and a strong eye for military camaraderie and complexity, providing energizing drama and a respectable.
yet satirical depiction of military procedure and attitudes, as well as lots of Scotch.
As the novel closes, with US forces preparing for conflict and Pick still missing, the dean of the American war adventure has given himself plenty of space for more action. Campaign on national television and in print. Under Fire by W.E.B. Griffin would give you the sense of war and warfare when it is imposed on you.
Filled with the crackling realism, adventure, and rich characters that are his hallmarks, Under Fire is further proof, as Tom Clancy says, that “W. E. B. Griffin is a storyteller in the grand tradition.”

In June, as civilian owners of Trans-Global Airways, Fleming and his son Malcolm set a new speed record for a scheduled commercial flight from San Francisco to Tokyo, where Ken McCoy shows Fleming his Top Secret report on the upcoming North Korean offensive—a report that lands McCoy in trouble with the Corps.
