GI Ingenuity Saves the Day

by MickMc on 8/11/2013

This is one of those rare books that made me sad to reach the end. I wanted to know more! A conniving Marine platoon sergeant never passes up an opportunity to make a buck, or 60,000 for that matter. Whereas he is an excellent NCO and a leader that every man trusted, he also had a hell of a nose for a deal when the opportunity presented itself. His camp's CO, Colonel Mason, a "mustang" from way back knew he could always count on Sergeant Carter to come through on a recon mission. He also knew that whenever the camp was abuzz Carter had to have something to do with it. The book begins with the near end of combat operations on island and follows Carter and his platoon through mop-up, aid to local villagers, and even eventually to Japanese Imperial Army troops holed up in a cave up north. Jake Carter wasn't satisfied to deal within his own; he ended up dragging in every branch of service except for the Coast Guard before his enterprises on Okinawa were through. He even found time and opportunity to whip up a little romance before being shipped off to the brig of a Navy aircraft carrier! Despite having a few too many convenient coincidences it is a gripping story of a wheeler-dealer and a true patriot. I'm looking forward to 2 years from now when I won't remember having read this book and I can start all over again! Ha! See? Age has its perks.
