About the Author

Editorial Reviews

“This collection of hand-selected articles nicely meets the objective of the book. The reader will appreciate each chapter’s contribution to and significance of the chronicle of the Marine Corps. Several chapters provide such detail that readers will almost feel they are there sharing in the account themselves. The fact that the chapters remain in their original form also gives readers the feel in time and place. This authenticity makes for a priceless connection to the ways the authors experience war and how their happenstance affected the future roles, functions, and operational employment of Marines. This book is an important read for U.S. Marines, sailors, and naval historians, and those seeking an appreciation for events influencing the evolution of the Marine Corps and Marine Corps/Navy team.” —Military Review
