Reviews

"In this book on Merrill's Marauders, author Edward Young covers a brief chronology that led up to the formation of the unit, followed by a section on recruitment and organization. We then get to look at how their training went in the US and India before seeing how the units were composed. Then it is on to life within the unit. The unit's motivation and morale is next as well as how they were equipped. We then get to see how they operated while on campaign and then what happened when the unit was disbanded. All of this is superbly illustrated by Adam Hook and an excellent collection of period photographs. This is definitely one of Osprey's better titles and one that I can most highly recommend to you." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness, modelingmadness.com (December 2009)
