US Marine Corps Pacific Theater of Operations : 1943-44 v. 2 Paperback / softback
Part of the Battle Orders S. series
The year 1944 saw a great deal of Marine Corps activity.
The early defeats suffered by America in the Pacific were past; the pivotal naval battle for Midway had been won, and the Solomon Islands had fallen once again to the Allies.
As 1944 dawned, a new Marine Corps - organised, trained and armed for the coming battles - prepared to launch itself into the outer defenses of a still defiant Japan.
In this book, the 1944 re-organisation of Marine units is studied in detail, including the implementation and history behind the "fire team" concept that is still a key factor in Marine organisation and tactics today.
