More Description

Since their beginnings in the Revolutionary War, the United States Marine Corps has been the leading edge of America's military power. "First to fight ..". were not just words in a song, but an apt description of their mission, and the Marines' dash, bravery, and color has captured the heart and the imagination of the American public as no other service. A Fellowship of Valor celebrates the panoply of great battles that stud the Marine battle colors, and along the way, it covers the legends and leaders, the great traditions and the inbred esprit that sets this gallant breed magnificently apart.

Brilliantly written by Colonel Joseph Alexander, USMC (Ret.), the rousing narrative is unerringly accurate and backed by a decade of painstaking research. As chief historian of Lou Reda Productions, holders of major military archives, Alexander had unprecedented access to filmed and photographed material. The late Don Horan, a double winner of the Emmy Award for Television Writing began this work, and Norman Stahl lent his long expertise in editing and writing on Marine history as well.

Rich with fascinating detail and anecdotes, A Fellowship off Valor is loaded with rare combat photos of Marines in action, dramatic illustrations, and fine battle maps. It also features illuminating sidebar stories on special weapons, events, traditions, and heroes, and generous appendices that feature battle honors, combat casualties, and profiles of colorful Marine heroes from Tripoli to Desert Storm, from Presley O'Bannon to Howling Mad Smith to Chesty Puller. It is a stunning journey from the fighting tops of the Bon Homme Richard through the storming of Kuwait City.
