Synopsis

Synopsis

This volume provides an in-depth look at the experience of the ordinary US marine 'grunt' in Vietnam. Organisation of the corps, weaponry, equipment, uniforms, training and medical arrangements are all discussed. However, where this book differs from other similar works is not only in the detail that it goes into but also in the unifying theme of examining all these differing aspects of marine life from the point of view of a soldier serving in the conflict. The author, Charles Melson, actually served in the Vietnam War (1955-1975), and it is this personal experience that allows him to provide such a unique angle on the subject.
Praise

Praise

"This detailed, grass-roots look at the backbone of the US Marine Corps, the US Marine Rifleman, provides for an enjoyable, informative read in a good chronological order that is easy to follow. Osprey’s U.S Marine Rifleman 1939-45 - Pacific Theater is a valuable addition to any figure reference library." -Steve Readdie, Historicus Forma (October 2006)
