The U. S. Marines and Amphibious War

By Jeter A. Isely and Philip A. Crowl

Princeton University Press, 1951, 636 pp.

Superior to most military histories in its style and impartiality, this work by two Princeton historians (neither of them Marines) is a valuable contribution to our knowledge of the Marine Corps' rôle in developing the techniques of amphibious assault.
