THE FEW, THE PROUD, THE BRAVE
On Friday, November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress approved a resolution for the organization of the Corps, creating what would become the hallowed few, the proud--the Marines. Since then, the men and women of the United States Marine Corps have created the finest traditions of service and honor, and supplied a pantheon of heroes who have upheld them. In The Greatest U.S. Marine Stories Ever Told, editor Iain Martin has accumulated the Marines' most gripping true tales of service and sacrifice, from the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, to the conflicts where they serve today.
