Swift, Silent, and Deadly: Marine Amphibious Reconnaissance in the Pacific, 1942-1945
"With this book World War II Marine recon landings are chronicled for the first time - only in later wars have their contributions been fully documented. Here Meyers explains the start of it all, letting readers appreciate the courage and daring of these intrepid Marines as they slipped over the sides of their rubber boats and made their way inland."--BOOK JACKET.
