Book Description Presidio Press, U S A, 2001. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Hardback. First Edition. With the Old Corps in Nicaragua. Very slight shelf wear to top edge of D/J. A primary preoccupation of the United States marine Corps between the world wars were the so-called 'Banana Wars' in Nicaragua during the 20s and 30s. Over the years the Corps' presence ebbed and flowed as varied Nicaraguan political factions came to control the local government. The Marines' most formidable opponent was the now legendary guerrilla leader Augusto Sandino. In addition to the combat history of American Marines in Nicaragua, the author provides the historical background of this Central American nation and the numerous U.S. interventions into Nicaraguan domestic affairs. This gives the reader the necessary context to be able to understand the 'why' of the Marines presence. The heart of the text remains the combat history. A generation of Marine Corps leaders such as Red Mike Edson and Chesty Puller 'cut their teeth' in Nicaragua. The experience the Marines of the Old Corps gained fighting Sandino in the jungles of Nicaragua would bear fruit in World War II on the distant battlefields of the Pacific. Clark's account of this almost forgotten and little understood war in history at its best: exciting, informative and enlightening. Illustrated. 206 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books ,and all types of Academic Literature.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo. Hardback. Seller Inventory # 096654

Book Description Presidio Press, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Clean, tight. Unmarked. Jacket in new mylar cover. Illustrated with maps and 8 pages of photographs. Detailed account of US Marine Corps activities in Nicaragua in 1912, 1926 and during recurring operations to counter rebel leader Augusto Sandino lasting into the 1930s. These were small unit operations and patrols, led by junior officers or NCOs with a handful of Marine aircraft providing an early form of air support for the far-flung detachments, often performing heroic rescue and resupply flights at great risk. More often than not it was superior Marine Corps marksmanship and discipline that prevailed over the much larger guerrilla units in desperate, hard-fought encounters. // Shipped carefully packed in a sturdy box.
