Item Description

Book Description The Marine Corps came into being with the nation it serves, in 1775--and has been a proud defender of the American ideal ever since. With photographs of historic missions and shots of the Corps in action today, this illustrated volume gives readers a feel for what it means--and has meant--to be a Marine. Here, over time and wherever duty calls, are the select few who make up the tightly knit fighting force known for its lightning speed, overwhelming power, and truly heroic sense of duty. About the Author Chester G. Hearn, an American military veteran, has written several books on U.S. military and naval history, three of which have been main selections of the History Book Club. A graduate of Allegheny College, he is a full-time writer who lives in Erie, Pennsylvania.
