    A Good look at the Guns, not the men who fire them

    Tom Clancy is a profession. There is no mistaking that. The problem with this nonfiction work is that it is primarily centered around a MEUSOC's (Marine Expeditionaryunit/Special Operations Capable) weapons, scamatics and tactics. The book is a great read for those who want to find out about what it is that a Marine shoots, sleeps in or goes to sea on, yet as far as having 'an insiders look' as to what makes a grunt unit tick, what happens down bellow when the chow deck is empty and the units are snoring their nights away, playing spades or getting ready to storm a beach filled with wine woman and song...this book is not the one to choose. My suggestion is to thumb through this as a reference yet check out 'Stand By to Fall Out' (P. Chadz July 2003) to get an insider's view of what really goes on in a Marine unit both stateside and at sea. Clancy finishes his first hand accounts with a splash of his classic fictional future war focuses, yet does not do the Enlisted Marine the justice that is so rightfully deserved throughout the meat of the book.

    Propaganda and statistics

    Tom Clancy's name seens to open a lot of doors in the military world. He is guided around a training base, a carrier, and is given loads of information on weapons and vehicles. This is a rare book that is unfortunately burdened down by propaganda and tiresome statistics. Do not read this book if you want another Clancy thriller. It is hardcore nonfiction. However, this is not all bad if you do want nonfiction, because there is very few places that you will get such an in depth look at the Corps.
