Summary
  • An American saga from the birth of our country to the present era of the hydrogen bomb, this is the story of men and women who have worn the uniform of the United States Marines, proudly and with valor
  • Here are the names that no American can forget: Okinawa, Saipan, Belleau Wood, Vera Cruz, Chapultepec, Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal, Nicaragua, KoreaƯ
  • Text, drawings, photographs and paintings trace the growth of the Marine Corps from the rough-and ready corps of early days to a modern fighting force. This book is possible only because the Marine Corps generously opened its records and picture collections to research
  • The result is an exciting review of those historic night lights which illuminate the place of the Marines in the hearts of the American people, and the most complete history of the Corps now in print
  • The Marines are a unique branch of our armed service. They are trained to fight at sea, on land and in the air, and, for this reason, they have reflected every era of American progress. In the days of the clipper ships when sea-borne commerce followed the flag, the "soldiers of the sea" policed foreign shores whenever the need arose, and their intervention was not considered an act of war. Even as late as the turn of the century, Marine officers took pride in their ability to organize gangplank expeditionary forces on an hour's notice
  • Today the Marines traditions of esprit de corps and physical valor are as important as ever, but they are no longer enough. In 1933 the Marines initiated a high order of military pioneering when they began the development of the amphibious warfare techniques which proved to be the most important innovation of World War II
