This review is from: Neptune's Inferno (Paperback)
A whole series of myths have been dispelled by this well documented book. His prose is factual and matter of fact--no Bruce Catton he--but all the more compelling for its news reporting style. Without tarnishing the Marines' glorious record the Navy is finally acknowledged to have suffered twice the casualties as the Corps while demonstrating as crews and individuals the highest standards of heroism and devotion to their country.
