Semper Fidelis, "always faithful," is much more than a motto to the U.S. Marine Corps, it is a way of life. Since 1775, the Marines' success as an elite fighting force has been due to their strong code of character and esprit de corps, the spirit of devotion to the Corps and to their fellow Marines. Now, 227 years later, the fiery and proud history of the Marine Corps is celebrated for the first time in a definitive, magnificently illustrated, large format chronology published in conjunction with the Marine Corps Association.

U.S.M.C.: A Complete History is the definitive chronology on the Marines—serving as both a reference tool and a handsome addition to any military history collection. Building upon the official Marine Corps chronologies, this book will present a year-by year summary of significant Marine activities, from 1775 to the present. Key historical entries, as well as significant operations, technological advances, and the people instrumental in shaping the Marines, will be treated as expanded sidebars or articles. Treating these elements in detail will help bring this encyclopedic account of the Marine Corps history to life.

U.S.M.C.: A Complete History enables the history of the Corps to be cherished permanently in a handsome package that every Marine will be proud to own and—with its unique camouflage cover—to display. This book will be read again and again by past and present Marines, their families and friends, and the countless others that have been inspired by the Marine Corps.
