is a tribute to the Marine Corps, with an emphasis on the current state of the service. It discusses training, organization, doctrine, tactics (especially the recent emphasis on developing Marines as urban warfare specialists), and the future prospects of the Corps. A sizeable portion of the book deals with recent operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, and one of the outstanding features of this book is the selection of excellent photographs of those battles by Marine combat photographers.—George Schmidt
