War through the ages by Lynn Montross( Book )

25 editions published between 1944 and 1963 in English and Spanish and held by 1,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is unique -- the stirring story of war in all its phases from 490 B.C. to our own day. Since its first appearance fifteen years ago it has become a classic, a storehouse of military lore for the specialist and layman alike. The present edition is thoroughly revised and greatly enlarged. The World War II chapter have been rewritten to make use of sources not available earlier, particularly German and Japanese documents and memoirs. Completely new material has been added, covering more recent events such as the cold war between the Communist states and Western nations, the shooting war in Korea, and the Lebanon intervention. There is a full chronological table as well as a full bibliography of sources in chronological order, and new diagrams and maps make a total of nearly 140 illustrations. Mr. Montross is superbly readable because in telling his story he never loses sight of the fact that wars are waged by men. He is concerned first of all with people, with those who fought and the great conquerors who led them." -- Book jacket

The United States Marines, a pictorial history by Lynn Montross( Book )

The Marines are a unique branch of our armed service. They are trained to fight at sea, on land and in the air, and, for this reason, they have reflected every era of American progress. In the days of the clipper ships when sea-borne commerce followed the flag, the "soldiers of the sea" policed foreign shores whenever the need arose, and their intervention was not considered an act of war. Even as late as the turn of the century, Marine officers took pride in their ability to organize gangplank expeditionary forces on an hour's notice
