Informative but could have used a bit more editing. Interesting to learn how the Marines managed to get troops sent over to Europe with some political machinations when the Army would have rather kept them out of the fight. It was a good thing for the US we sent them though. They focused on marksmanship as a part of their training which made a big difference in battles where some of the Army troops had little actual experience shooting their guns.

The battles the Marines engaged in are meticulously relayed to the reader with many stories of heroics briefly told. The story of the Marines as a whole is center stage though and individual heroics are side notes. A history rather than an engaging story. ( )
