One of the absolute best fiction books dealing with military fiction I have read I a very long time. As a retired Army 3 time Iraq combat vet it rang true to me. Especially being wounded on my 3rd tour and fighting to stay in. This book and its characters revolve heavily around warriors that are given second chances. Life happens to combat vets. Not all are able to deal well with coming home after combat. The author has a true understanding of this. I felt an emotional tug each time I read the background story to the main characters we are introduced to. Their issues resonated with me. After serving 20 yrs the warrior mindset never leaves. It is always a part of you. This book truly does honor to this. It honors our nation's Veterans. It does all this while weaving a story of Justice. Who wouldn't an entity out there that would be able to operate outside the boundaries of the law to take down the scumbags out there? That have moral convictions based upon military values? Look, our law enforcement and military hands are tied when it comes to dealing out justice at times and scumbags end walking away. Well, here's a book that solves those issues. While honoring our veterans. Veterans dealing justice. Veterans given second chances. If you are a combat veteran get this book. If want to know what drives combat vets, get it. You won't be disappointed by the story or the characters.

Back to War by CG Cooper
I have read and enjoyed all the books from the Corps Justice Series. And… I keep coming back to reread Back to War, the first book in the series. This novel is great! I love the intensity of Cal Stokes. His bravery and loyalty are meaningful and even, inspiring. Back to War is an exciting thriller filled with action. Marine Cal Stokes comes home from war only to find another kind of enemy that transforms his life. He battles this evil, often outside of the law, but always with a strong moral compass. Author C.G.Cooper is a phenomenal writer who knows how to put a story together. His characters are unforgettable. His storylines are compelling. The Corps Justice Series is by far the most entertaining on the market today. Back to War is the novel that started it all. I highly recommend C.G.Cooper's Back to War and the Corps Justice Series.

While I did enjoy this book, it was the promise of what is to come that kept my attention. I could do without the, "Cal: I don't know." , "Andy: Why not!". This drove me crazy until I got into the book. I have Hope's that the writer will grow and write with a more natural flow. At first I thought I was reading a draft of a TV script.
Even with that, I loved the premise of the story and am looking forward to reading the series.

'Back to War' was very thrilling and full of action. The storyline was intriguing. The emotional side of this book's premise was quite intense. Before reading this book, I had read a review by a man that stated it was definitely a man's story. But i have to disagree. Even though the book is primarily male dominant, I still found it very diverse. I grew up with family in the military, all branches, and now my kids are part of the military family. So I do understand the honor and pride that comes from serving. Having said that, I don't think you have to have any military background to fully understand and enjoy this book. The characters were a great assortment of personalities and backgrounds. They are loyal, honorable and dedicated to their country and having a safer world to live in. Cal went through a type of re-birth of his life after losing his fiancé. Travis, Neil, Andy and quite a few more were great as well. I look forward to reading more of the 'Corps Justice Series'.

I really liked one of his other books (A Life Worth Taking) but because it was the only one out, I couldn’t continue that series so I thought I’d try this one. It is predictable but good. I’d give it four stars but there were SO many typos in the kindle edition. There were also some loose ends that never got tied up and I’m assuming that will be in another book maybe? He introduces characters all the way up until the last fight scene happens too which I assume is to lay ground work for later. It was an easy read, allowed good stopping points, but it is definitely for a specific type of reader. If you are into military and enjoy the “cop mystery” type, definitely read this.

Neatly interwoven action and explanations as Cal reunites with his family and his special ops business, after a long separation. A personal vendetta follows, against a clever criminal responsible for the deaths of Cal's family members. The story deserves 5 stars, but the lack of polished writing took away one. I know from later writing that this problem soon resolved. This series is Highly Recommended.

A gang banger from post Katrina moves to TN and expands his empire. During a gang initiation they pick on the wrong couple, killing the man's fiancee. The fight is on. Cal is a patriotic marine and now he is out to find the last man involved in the attack. He has a lot of friends from and in the military who is willing to help.

I love moral good guy verses evil bad guy themes. This was as good as my favorite characters from Sandford, Thor, Patterson, DeMille, and V. Vaughn. I just put the entire series on my wish list. The first three books are free. I highly recommend this book, and the author in particular.

Another great C.G. Cooper novel and another great series about our men and women who have served in the military and are still serving in civilian life. Meet Cal Stokes, Marine veteran, injured in combat, but not sure what comes next. His deceased father's company offers him sanctuary while recovering from an attack that killed the love of his life, Jessica, and almost him as well. Hell bent on revenge for Dante West, the man responsible for his lose, Cal and friends actions take you along for all the action. Hang on tight, it's going to be a wild ride. Thanks for letting me get to know Cal, Brian, and the rest of the Justice team. This is one you don't want to miss.

I have waited until I have read all of the Corps Justice books currently available to write this review. I would suggest a reader read the Daniel Briggs series starting with Adrift before reading the second Cal Stokes novel. I can't say that I have enjoyed any series as much as this one. I only hope Mr. Cooper will further enrich our lives with more Corps Justice books. I know he left the door open and I can't wait to see what happens next.

I stumbled across this book while looking for something to read while on a trip to a conference. I've now read every book in this series and look forward to the next one.

C.G. Cooper is an excellent writer and I strongly recommend anyone who likes military thrillers read all his books.
In addition to being a really talented writer, he is a very personable guy and has strong interaction with his readers.
If you like this genre you really need to read his "Corps Justice" series books and I suggest you read them in order just to put some context into each book.

I'm posting the same review for all his Corps Justice books because I feel very strongly about them and the short shorties he has written to fill in the gaps.
