Semper Fi: The Definitive Illustrated History of the U.S. Marines

Semper Fi: The Definitive Illustrated History of the U.S. Marines Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With more than 1,100 images and a text written by respected author and veteran Colonel H. Avery Chenoweth, this tribute to the U.S. Marines shines with all the pride of the Marines themselves.

Salute the few, the proud, the Marines. From their founding in 1794 to their most recent actions-including the second battle of Falluja-the entire history of the U.S. Marine Corps comes vividly to life in these lushly illustrated pages. Pore through the comprehensive images of nearly every Marine hero, uniform style, sidearm, saber, weapons platform, recruiting poster, plane, helicopter, boat, and mess kit. Many of the photos were shot right at the Historical Center at Quantico, Virginia, and they include rare and never-before-seen artifacts from the Marines' long history. Colonel H. Avery Chenoweth provides fascinating background information and context to compliment the visual journey.
