Subtitled : US Marine Corps - Heroes of The Pacific War (Auth. Ron Field)
Military Illustrated has emerged as one of the world's premier military magazines, specialising in covering famous units with a detailed text backed up by numerous colour illustrations.
The U.S. Marine Corps has been selected for the first of a series of hardback book-length treatments of famous military units. In addition to its text and spectacular illustrations, Marine contains a bibliography and a directory to Marine Corps museums, societies, memorials and interest groups.
This book tells the story of America's proudest and most celebrated fighting men - the U.S. Marine Corps. It shows them at their finest moment in the Pacific War against Japan, detailing their development of amphibious warfare and the challenges they faced in the island-hopping campaigns that eventually ensured the enemy's defeat.
In addition to accounts of their bravery in action, the legacy of the Marine Corps is evaluated, describing their humanitarian tasks in conflicts today alongside their enduring fighting strengths.
