Overview


In 1775, at Philadelphia’s Tun Tavern, the United States Marine Corps was born. It has been a proud defender of American freedom ever since. With photographs of historic missions and stunning new shots of Marines in action today, USMC gives readers a feel for what it truly means to be a Marine. These select few make up a tightly knit fighting force that can strike at lightning speed with massive, overwhelming power whenever duty calls. From training to planning to fighting, America’s “soldiers of the sea” do whatever it takes to accomplish their missions with an esprit de corps that helps make them second to no other fighting unit in the world. USMC highlights the discipline, loyalty, enthusiasm, and poise that distinguish each Marine and give the entire Corps unmatched power and cohesion.
