History of the Marines in World War I and how their leadership learned the lessons necessary to change from a littoral combat arm of the Navy to a modern fighting force that would be utilized in the Pacific campaign. The lesson however was costly with casualty rates of 55% in many engagements. ( )

This is a very good classic novel about the First World War. It is the tale of an American marine who fought on the Western Front during the last days of the war. It is an emotional account of the insanity of war and the ability of war to destroy the soul, leaving the surviver a hollowed out shell. ( )
