Devil Dogs : Fighting Marines of World War I
by George B. Clark




Overview -
In telling the story of the extraordinary contributions of the U.S. Marines in World War I, this now-classic history examines the Corps' entire experience in France. Now available in paperback, the book is a valuable resource for data, especially details about each unit and how they functioned. Bolstered with information from official documents as well as published and unpublished memoirs, readers follow the Marines from their recruitment, through training and shipment overseas, to the horrors of trench warfare. The famous battle at Belleau Wood is fully examined, along with the lesser known campaigns at Blanc Mont and Meuse River, and the critical engagements at Verdun, Marbache, and St. Mihiel. Readers learn how the 4th Marine Brigade earned the nickname Devil Dogs and why their experiences helped forge the Corps' identity. It is a new addition to the Leatherneck Classics series.
