Richard L. Hemenez
McFarland, 2001 - History - 728 pages
This enormous annotated bibliography of the Marine Corps details fiction, nonfiction, stage, poetry, music, movie, and television references to the Marine Corps. It covers over 2,500 books, 500-plus Hollywood films, 80 made-for-television movies, 100 fictional television programs, articles, parts of books, dissertations, chronologies, dictionaries, and oral histories. Beginning with an introduction that focuses on the history of the Marine Corps, this work serves as research into such subjects as duty stations, ships, posts, heroes and their heroics, uniforms, boot camp, and equipment. Listed in the film section are over 100 former Marines who are film and television actors.
Reflecting the comprehensiveness of the book, there are over 15,000 subject headings (totaling over 25,000 indexed items). The researcher (and the research librarian) will appreciate the depth and the breadth of the book.
