What People are Saying About This

Allan R. Millett
The Marines is the ultimate cruise book for an entire service, an awesome combination of informed writing, brilliant photography, and spectacular layout. If books could take hills, The Marines would be King of the Mountain. Colonel, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve (Ret.) and author of Semper Fidelis: The History of the U.S. Marine Corps
Richard M. Seamon
It is all here--the history, the training, the weapons, the roll-call of heroes--everything that is part of the battle-tested spirit of the United States Marines. Richly illustrated with paintings and portraits and some of the finest battlefield photography ever collected, this magnificent volume is no typical coffee table decoration. Scholarly and insightful text ranges as far as the exploits of the Corps itself. This eloquent tribute makes clear that from the Commandant to private they have earned their pride in the title of United States Marines. Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve (Ret.) U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings
