Heinl's book is one of the best histories of the Marine Corps up to 1962. However, from 1775, Marines have shown time and again that they have earned the right to not only exist, but to be at the forefront of America's battles.

Heinl's book is one of the best histories of the Marine Corps up to 1962. It gives an in-depth analysis of how and why the Corps was formed, its battle history and what it has done to survive the constant sniping by many Army generals and politicians who did not see a use for another "army".

The history of the United States Marine Corps (USMC) begins with the founding of the Continental Marines on 10 November 1775 to conduct ship-to-ship fighting, provide shipboard security and discipline enforcement, and assist in landing forces. Its mission evolved with changing military doctrine and foreign policy of the United States. Owing to the availability of Marine forces at sea, the United States Marine Corps has served in nearly every conflict in United States history.

From the War of Independence through the dark days of the Cold War, the Marines have fought in all the nation's wars. Their readiness and prompt action at Harper's Ferry stopped John Brown's insurrection in its tracks. In 1917, as the "First to Fight" slogan demonstrated its electric effect, the 5th Marines sailed for France and joined up with the first convoy at sea, anxious to get on with the war. With courage, discipline, and typical small-unit initiative, the Marines triumphed at Belleau Wood, a victory that was to advantageously affect the quality and thinking of the Marine Corps ever after.Yet it is no accident that so much of the Marine Corps' fighting and expeditionary service has taken place between the major wars. Marines could be found detaining Abraham Lincoln's suspected assassins aboard the Montauk, conducting minor landings in Nicaragua or Korea in the late nineteenth century, or battling rebels in Haiti or Cuba in the twentieth century. Their flexibility and adaptability has earned them a solid reputation as a preeminent fighting force.Their contributions to America's military force have been many. Development of amphibious warfare during World War II was undoubtedly one of the most important tactical innovations in our history. As larger military services are reduced between wars, the Corps' traditional role as "a force in readiness" becomes more essential for peacetime strength. And when the Marines are called to action, their preparedness and effectiveness as a maritime fighting team is unequaled.

Any one who wants to get a great book on the history of the US Marine Corps, this is the book. It was required reading when I was in the Corps so many years ago, I enjoyed it then and its a great addition to my library now.

If you are now or have ever served as an officer in the United States Marine Corps and you don't own this book, SHAME ON YOU!

This is the STANDARD history book of our Corps and you should both own it, read it and thoroughly know it. S/F

Col. Heinl's book is one of the best histories of the Marine Corps up to 1962. It gives an in-depth analysis of how and why the Corps was formed, its battle history and what it has done to survive the constant sniping by many Army generals and politicians who did not see a use for another "army".

However, from 1775, Marines have shown time and again that they have earned the right to not only exist, but to be at the forefront of America's battles. With the Flag raising on Mount Suribachi, on Iwo Jima, James Forrestal, Secretary of the Navy said, "The raising of that flag on Suribachi means a Marine Corps for the next five hundred years."

And he was right.

Colonel Heinl's exhausting research has produced an absorbing account of the Marines history from its inception at Tun Tavern in 1775 through 1962. He has concentrated on the leadership of this elite force, its traditions and battleground experiences. The development of amphibious warfare during WWII is especially interesting as the author tells of the mistakes as well as the successes. There is an on-going theme regarding the plain survival of the Corps for the past 200 years as many critics felt the Marines were simply another "Army". I will keep and refer to this 900 page masterpiece forever.

I read this book when I was a 18 year old Navy Corpsman assigned to Third Battalion, 1st Marines in 1963. I remember it as the best book I have ever seen recounting the history of the United States Marine Corps in which I was proud to serve. If you are serving or have served in the Corps, you need this book.
