About this title

Synopsis:

This book pays tribute to the U.S. Marines, the World's Warrior Elite.

It's all here: Marine quotations, Tun Tavern, Marine slogans, and the revered War Memorial on "hallowed ground." There's much, much more: Blood Stripe, Blood Chit, Battle Colors, the many creeds, the Commandants, and the Mameluke and NCO swords.

The book includes Marine Corps history and heritage. Professionally and without profanity, the author explores the world of U.S. Marines, proud patriots who live in the province of legend. Plus, the text offers satire exclusively for Marine Warriors. Readers find timeless one-liners for the Magnificent Grunts and Marine Air.

"Politically In-Correct" and proud of it! A gung-ho and up-beat look at the premier fighting force on planet Earth.

About the Author:

Marion Sturkey entered the Brotherhood of Marines in 1961. As the years passed, he discovered that no one ever truly leaves the Corps. He found that the title, U.S. Marine, is retained for a lifetime.

After authoring two non-military books, Marion published "BONNIE-SUE: A Marine Corps Helicopter Squadron in Vietnam" in 1996. Set against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960s, this saga of loyalty and brotherhood became a military classic. Often considered the definitive work on Marine Corps operations in Vietnam, it has been reprinted time after time. Today it remains a best seller in both print and audio-book formats.

Today, Marion's articles and book excerpts appear regularly in military magazines. He has been featured in a T.V. documentary about Marines in Vietnam. Also, he is a frequent speaker at Marine Corps bases and at other military functions. "Warrior Culture of the U.S. Marines" is his fourth book.
