First to Fight: An Inside View of the U.S. Marine Corps
Deftly blending history with autobiography, action with analysis, the legendary Marine general Victor "Brute" Krulak offers here a riveting insider's chronicle of U.S. Marines-their fights on the battlefield and off, and their extraordinary experience during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam-wars in which Krulak was himself a participant-but also examines the foundation on which the Corps is built. In doing so, he helps answer the questions of what it means to be a Marine and how the Corps has maintained such a consistently outstanding reputation.
First to Fight has been included on the Marine Corps's recommended reading list for many years.
