Publisher's Summary

James A. Warren's battle-driven history shows how this elite culture has produced the best warriors in the country, through six decades, several open wars, and many smaller interventions. From their heroic performance in the Pacific War, against Japanese troops on god-forsaken islands, to their "tip-of-the-lance" leadership in key operations in the two Gulf Wars, the Marines have proven again and again that elite men with elite training are worth entire armies. This is the first modern history of the Marines in a generation and the first to show how battlefield performance has driven the Marines from the Cold War to the war on terror.

Excellent

I have read or listened to many books on the subject of the marines and their battle history. This listen will give you a broad overview of all the battles be they on the battle field or in the halls of political power of the marines since WWII. If you are interested in modern marine history this is a great place to start.

History that if you are a Marine, you have heard.

If you are a Marine, it's your history but nothing you haven't heard before. If you want to get a better understanding of where the Marine corps came from then this is a good start.
