New book on the 4th (Marine Brigade) at Blanc Mont, WWI

Recommended Posts

I just finished reading this book. It is a fine account of this little studied battle, Blanc Mont, concentrating on the 4th (Marine) Brigade. The authors give great detail down to the company level. Included are some of the actions of the 3rd Brigade (US Army) and the 36th Division as they came in to relieve the 2nd Division. The maps are very helpful and there are plenty of illustrations. At 73 pages, it’s a fairly quick read. Available through the Marine Corps History Division, USMCU.edu, and the Government Printing Office bookstore.

Thanks for posting I have ordered a copy. October 4th was the bloodiest day of the war for the Americans. Not eneoifh attention is given this battle. Thanks again

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after.
