United States Marine Corps played a leading role in the war against Japan from Pearl Harbor in December 1941 until VJ Day on 2 September 1945. Living up to its motto the “First to Fight”, the 1st Marine Division landed on the Japanese-occupied island of Guadalcanal in the South Pacific on August 7, 1942 and fought its way up the central Solomon islands to Cape Gloucester in the territory of New Guinea.

In November 1943, the Marine Corps captured Tarawa Atoll and so began their advance across the Central Pacific, fighting many famous and bloody battles such as Saipan, Tinian, Guam, Peleliu, Iwo Jima and finally the 82-day epic struggle for Okinawa. These victories came at high cost, with 19,737 Marines killed, and 67,207 wounded.

This classic Images of War title presents a graphic overview of the Corps’ legendary campaign in text and contemporary images. The Author expertly describes the full range of Marine Corps weaponry and explains their organization, tactics and fighting doctrine.

Miniature Wargames, December 2018

The island hopping campaign conducted by the US Marines was a unique military campaign in WW2, one which led to the large organisation of the US Marines that remains in place to this day. An excellent addition to the Images of War series and one that will interest anyone, historian and modeller alike, who has an interest in the PTO (Pacific Theatre of Operation) during WW2.
