From the islands of the Pacific to Korea to the Middle East, James A. Warren's riveting and authoritative battle history of the Marines reveals how "the few and the proud" have drawn on their timeless precepts across six decades while reinventing themselves in the face of political change to forever remain America's finest warriors.
"A vivid and compelling account that pays tribute not only to the valor of Marines in wartime but to the grit, adaptability, and shrewdness of the Marine Corps between wars."
-- Andrew J. Bacevich, author of "The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War"
"A welcome, readable, and concise history of the corps' past 60 years."
-- "The Washington Post"
