Devil Dogs: Fighting Marines of World War I
Historian George B. Clark tells the complete, never before published story of the extraordinary contributions of the Marine combat service in World War I. Devil Dogs is the first book to examine the entire experience of the Marine Corps in France. Bolstered with information taken from original documents, as well as personal memoirs, both published and unpublished, the reader will follow the men who became Marines, from their recruitment, through training and shipment overseas, to the horrors of trench warfare and the quest to survive on the battlefield known as the "killing zone," where it was common for the wounded and gassed to be put back into the line of fire with minimal time for recovery.
