Product Description

Product Description

By January 1944 the US Marine Corps had grown to a total of 405,169 personnel, comprising 28,193 officers, 10,723 officer candidates, and 366,353 enlisted men. The Fleet Marine Force now had two amphibious corps, four divisions, a separate infantry regiment, 19 defense battalions, and numerous support and service units. Following on from Battle Orders 1: USMC in the Pacific Theater of Operations 1941–43, this book examines the continuing development of the Corps's organization, its training, tactics, weaponry, and command structure, as well as the battles fought in the Southwest Pacific on New Britain, and in the Central Pacific on Tarawa, Roi-Namur, Eniwetok, Saipan, and Tinian. The organization of the 4th Marine Division (MarDiv) and III and V Amphibious Corps (IIIAC, VAC) is also discussed along with smaller, new units.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have Organizational History of the WWII USMC 27 Oct 2004
By Stuart M. Kohn - Published on
Gordon Rottman, a prolific writer and historian who has recent some of the best Osprey titles, succeeds brilliantly with this 3 volume organizational history of the USMC in WWII. In a clear concise manner, Rottman, manages to give a detailed overview of the development of the USMC order of battle during the war. This book, as well as the other two volumes, is a must have for those interested in the Marine Corps WWII order of Battle.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This booklet is part of an entire series. I have no problem with the quality of the written material, however the publishing company did a mediocre job in the printing. Some of the printed pages are very light and hard to read. Photos in the book are very light and the source of the photo, (a USMC photo) the author does not source! Even when he does, the text is so small and light that it is unreadable. This booklets are published by Osprey Publishing.
