Poole, 1st ed., 1983. 191 pp., photo-ills., + cold., plates. D.j., 25 x 19cm. V.G.+. Marine and Naval Infantrymen of the world occupy a secure niche in military history, and yet, prior to this book, there had never been a single volume that had gathered together even capsule histories of these units, descriptions of their uniforms and illustrations of their badges and insignia. The colour plates of over 1,000 badges and insignia were the most thorough presentation of these items to have been attempted at the time of publication. With their colourful blend of the military and the naval, their uniforms and badges, histories and traditions, make fascinating reading. Here are the stories of those units that have been long established, some that are more recent, and a few of significance that have vanished. Over 100 photographs complement the text.
