The first Pacific book covers the US Marine Corps. The land and sea fighting troops of the US Naval Department, though not part of the US Navy, were closely associated with them. They were at the forefront of much of the fighting in the Pacific, bearing the brunt of many of the Japanese attacks early in the war, but eventually leading the fight during the liberation of the Pacific Islands from the clutches of Imperial Japan.
So what will you find in Gung-Ho? We cover the Marine Corps role in the Pacific War, look at their methods and tactics and take a closer look at two of their campaigns, Saipan and Okinawa, both with gaming and scenario suggestions.¾
