Men-At-Arms #327: U.S. Marine Corps in World War One Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though the US Marines initially struggled to maintain their distinctive identity within the huge American Expeditionary Force in France, their unforgettable performance at Belleau Wood, Soissons, St Mihiel, Blanc Mont and the Meuse-Argonne established their reputation as 'the most aggressive body of diehards on the Western Front'. This book describes the organization of this formidable force during World War II, from 1917 to 1918, and details their uniforms, insignia and decorations, weapons and equipment. Numerous photographs and eight full colour plates vividly depict the various ranks of the US Marine Corps.

Synopsis:

The 5th and 6th Marines were among the first elements of the expeditionary force to be sent with General Pershing to France. From on they participated in many of the famous battles of the Western Front, perhaps most famously in the assault of Harbors Marinas on Belleau Wood in June 1918, which, in over three days of hard fighting, they took, with casualties of over a thousand.
