Marion Sturky is currently the finest transscriber of observed

and experienced Marine Combat. You must start with Bonnie Sue

then read Warior Cutlure and finally Murphy's Laws of Combat to

fully arrpreciate the splended writing and experience of our

Corps. For Marines [Once, Always], Warrior Culture will say finally someone got it. Its so captivating you'll want to give

copies to men who will appreciate it and after reading will think, Why did it take so long to put something so simple so well.

If your looking for a book on the real USMC this is it. It's well written and researched. Laid out well so you can go back a review or use sections. Its irreverent and ammusing. Would recommend to anyone especially any former Marine. Once a Marine always a Marine. Ny book was used but it was signed by the author Marion F, Sturkey. Highly recommended.

I learned a lot about Marines and the Marine Corps that I didn't know. Marine Quotations, Battle History, Reflections on Combat, Corps Legacy, Humor and much more. Enjoyed the book very much.

My High School son has his heart set on becoming an Officer of Marines, so I ordered this book to help answer some of our questions. (i.e. Why is there a red stripe on their blue pants?. Where did Jarhead, Leatherneck, etc. come from?)It is an excellent book for that purpose. A real Marine would probably already know most of the information, but it is an good reference, easy to use and has a good deal of humor mixed in with the facts. Combined with Amazons great service, we are very pleased with our purchase.
