Counterinsurgency and the United States Marine Corps

Counterinsurgency and the United States Marine Corps

From the turn of the 20th century until the end of World War II, the United States Marine Corps fought a series of "small wars," starting in the Philippines in 1899, and ending in the islands of the southwest Pacific in 1945. Through this experience, the Marines perfected the prosecution of such wars in its famed Small Wars Manual, written for Marine Corps schools in the late 1930s. The present volume is a chronological examination of the various Marine expeditions in the Pacific, West Indies and Central America from 1899 through 1945, and of the lessons learned.
