MARINES IN COMBAT
20 True Heroic Tales of U.S. Marines at War
Volume 1: 1918-1945


by Dick Camp


In twenty hard-hitting, action-packed true, heroic stories—from Marines attacking at Belleau Wood in World War I to patrolling the Dominican Republic between the world wars, and from sea-going Marines under attack at Pearl Harbor to Marine airmen in the attack at Midway, then on to Marine Raiders battling the Japanese at Guadalcanal in 1942 to Marines storming Peleliu in 1944—retired USMC Colonel Dick Camp chronicles the making of the modern U.S. Marine Corps in this first volume of magazine article reprints and excerpts from his growing list of authoritative Marine Corps history books.

Marines in Combat will prove to be inspiring to Marines, former Marines, friends of the U.S. Marine Corps, and any other reader of military history who wants to know what war looks like from the bottom up.
