KIRKUS REVIEW

Sure seller for boys, to whom the Marines are tops in the service, as this is the history of the Leathernecks from 1803 to the present day, -- engagements, exploits, adventures. There are marvelous tales to delight boys of any age, leading off with the defense of Wake Island, and then going back to earlier history. The author does not fall into the trap of pedantry, but keeps his story on a plane of high adventure, stressing achievements and daring deeds, personal and corps courage.
