Book Synopsis

During World War II, millions of patriotic Americans served in the armed forces.

Among the best and toughest were the U.S. Marines. In the Pacific theater, they fought tough, determined, fanatical opponents (the Imperial Japanese Army & Navy)...rarely willing to surrender...even when severely outnumbered...

In this brief booklet, the author, a U.S. Air Force Cold War veteran, offers intriguing photographs of U.S. Marines and the intense battles they fought, as well as insignia, uniforms and rifles of both the U.S. and Japan...

Though all Pacific battles aren't covered here, famous battles like Saipan and Okinawa are (one of the author's relatives, a U.S. Marine, was killed, only age 21, at the Battle of Saipan in 1944; his story is highlighted here)...

Despite the many American deaths, the United States won the War...thanks in no small measure to tough, patriotic U.S. Marines who had to endure miserable jungle warfare...
