Description:

This work focuses on the operations of the UK Royal Marines and the Republic of Korea (South) Marines during the Korean War. The PDF file is well bookmarked by section, something that appears to be rare in the case of digitized historical Marine files. The volume is well illustrated with photographs and some maps. A number of sidebars are in this volume, including Royal Marine Commando equipment and tactics.
