The 4th Marine Brigade At Belleau Wood And Soisson: History And Battlefield Guide
- Air, Ground, & Naval Warfare, World War I
A milestone for the Marines
The battles of Belleau Wood and Soissons in June and July of 1918 marked a turning point in World War I and in the stature of the US Marine Corps. In this book, J. Michael Miller takes us to those battlefields, immersing us in the experience of a single brigade of marines at the forefront of the fighting.
Miller outlines the company and platoon levels of combat throughout the campaign; he also draws on letters, diaries, and interviews to create a vivid and personal reconstruction of the battles. This detailed book also includes mapping of both battlefields, with a thirty-six-stop guide linking the text with the actual terrain. For each of these stops, Miller gives GPS coordinates to provide a virtual tour of the sites he discusses.
