More Information
Within the Marine Corps, the "Old Breed" has a special meaning, referring to the soldiers of the 1st Marine Division & their heroic defense of Guadalcanal in the early days of World War II, as well as to those who have gone before. This book gives today's readers a rare chance to hear these old soldiers tell their own stories and to learn firsthand what it was like to be there for some of the 20th century's most harrowing battles and powerful triumphs. From personal interviews & the archives of oral history, the author has collected the reminiscences of the Marine Corps' top rank of post-World War II officer legends, from early firties commandant Lemuel Shepherd's memories of Belleau Wood in World War I to on-the-spot accounts of leading soldiers into battle in Vietnam. Many of Camp's subjects were former commandants of the Corps, most were 4-star generals, & all were heroes whose stories are the stuff of history.
