    not bad, but not the insider look at MARINES

    This book is good...if you want the dragnet version of weapons and tactics protocol and proceedure. The book I would suggest to any Marine who wants to remember the stories about cleaning these weapons, missing the curfews and getting restricted to these bases (due to past follies with brothers in arms) I would say to pick up the 700 pages P. Chadz wrote about his first tour and what really goes on for grunts. An area that most if not all authors fear to tread
