Publisher's Summary

On Friday, November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress approved a resolution for the organization of the Corps, creating what would become the hallowed few, the proud - the Marines. Since then, the men and women of the United States Marine Corps have created the finest traditions of service and honor, and supplied a pantheon of heroes who have upheld them.
In The Greatest US Marine Stories Ever Told, editor Iain Martin has accumulated these marines' most amazing true tales of service and sacrifice, from the Halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli, to the conflicts where they serve today.

Critic Reviews

"[A] very enjoyable read...definitely worthwhile. Should one have any interest in military history, or the Marine Corps in particular, then this book will be most enlightening." (Thomas Houlihan, SSGT, USMC (ret.), World War II Database)

Marines Will Hate This Narrator.

[{ "answer" : "No. At least in the print version if someone is butchering the words it has to be me.", "type" : "Overall", "question" : "Would you consider the audio edition of The Greatest U.S. Marine Corps Stories Ever Told to be better than the print version?

He referred to a B-A-R as a Bar. There were many more of these types of mistakes. I am an old Mustang Marine Captain whose Dad was a BAR man in the Pacific. He never referred to his weapon as a Bar. Calling a L/Cpl a Lieutenant Corporal is just ridiculous.

NCO'S should have their Marines read this!

One of the nagging things I always think about during my time in the Corps:
"If I could go back in time and tell that sh!tbird Lance I used to be to do something different, it'd be... in this case..."to read and have better knowledge of the Corps history."
This book was easy to follow and filled with some of the Corps best stories. A good place to start!
