This series was created by Military Illustrated magazine, the leading monthly military history publication in the English language. It has built an unrivaled reputation for authoritative articles, primary research, rare photographs, and specially commissioned artwork.
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.About the Author:
