Summary
"The United States Marine Corps in the World War provides succinct, factual, and historical information on the Marine Corps during the First World War. Published initially in 1920 as the first book from the newly created Historical Section of the Marine Corps, Major Edwin N. McClellan's history of Marines in the first global war has stood the test of time with its statistical and concise details of the growth, activities, and combat exploits of the Marines. During the 50th anniversary of the First World War, History Division provides an updated version that accounts for more accurate casualty numbers."--Description from page 2 of dust jacket
