I was shocked when I got this book in the mail. I could barely pick up the package. It measures 12 inches tall, 10.5 inches wide, and is 2 inches thick. It was written by Col H. Avery Chenoweth, USMCR (ret). It is a definitive, illustrated history of the USMC. This book describes the Marines as brave, ferocious, and tactically superior. It covers fighting such as the Battle of Princeton, Hall of Montezuma, the Boxer Rebellion, Iwo Jima, and more. There is "no better friend, no worse enemy than a U.S. Marine." It is the only branch of the military that combines expertise in air, land and sea combat. They were created during the American Revolution and have evolved into the U.S. Marine Corps of today.
This book is copyrighted 2005. Glossy full color pages. It lists Marine Corps ranks with insignias, Medals and decorations, battle streamers, unit sizes and commands, marine corps lingo, and Selected Marine Acronyms. Another book chock full of information that you shouldn't miss having.

I bought this as a gift for my special lady, who has a son in the Marines, and she was all like, "OMG NOW I CAN KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT!" and then everything was nice for everyone, ever. Buy from the seller to learn about history and make everything better.

I'm constantly trying to figure what to get my dad. The past 15 years I know I can't go wrong with a book about the United States Marines. This book here is the first one I actually read myself! I've never had the desire but this one just captured me. Beautifully done. I have bought him many of coffee table books on USMC .....I think he will like this one best! I'll be giving it to him on fathers day.
