The U.S. Marine Corps Story is fascinating because it mirrors the entire violent sweep of this country’s history, beginning with the American Revolution and spanning more than two hundred years of wars and battles. 

Over the course of thirty years, J. Robert Moskin interviewed hundreds of Marines at home and abroad and studied thousands of documents in order to write this monumental work.  This is the story, he says, “of men in battle – the story of individual courage – of men who risked everything to do what had to be done.”

Now updated and revised, this new edition includes comprehensive and revelatory information about the Marines’ role in the invasion of Panama and in the Persian Gulf War, as well as important changes within the Corps itself, such as the increasing role of women. 

Although packed with facts, it is also a book that a Marine can read with pride while re-experiencing the distinct code of comradeship, the remarkable esprit, and the sense of duty that drives Marines when their country needs them.
