Gunny - can we get this out to your address list?


How about this for a book bargain?

When published, the United States Marine Corps in Books and the Performing Arts was identified as the most comprehensive book of its type ever printed about the Corps. It received excellent reviews and was described as a “must have” for those interested in the literature of and about Marines. And its 730 plus pages were expensive at $95.00.

This is to let you know that Edward Hamilton Bookseller (hamiltonbook.com) specializing in remainders and overstocks is offering the book for $19.95 with shipping about $4.00.

Recall that the this enormous annotated bibliography of the Marine Corps details fiction, nonfiction, stage, poetry, music, movie, and television references to the Marine Corps. It covers over 2,500 books, 500-plus Hollywood films, 80 made-for-television movies, 100 fictional television programs, articles, parts of books, dissertations, chronologies, dictionaries, and oral histories. Beginning with an introduction that focuses on the history of the Marine Corps, this work serves as research into such subjects as duty stations, ships, posts, heroes and their heroics, uniforms, boot camp, and equipment. Listed in the film section are over 100 former Marines who are film and television actors.

Also reflecting the comprehensiveness of the book, there are over 15,000 subject headings (totaling over, 25,000 indexed items). The researcher (and the research librarian) will appreciate the depth and the breadth of the book.

And it’s entertaining as well! The Company of Military Historians observed that “Colonel Hemenez’ comments are succinct, frequently humorous, often barbed but never dull. They alone are worth the price of admission in this highly recommended reference book.”

I purchased one of the originals at $95 and it was a great buy!

Truly a great reference book, and an eye-opener, for Marines interested in USMC history.

Col Hemenez named his book in his post above, but it may have been unclear that was the actual name of the book (the United States Marine Corps in Books and the Performing Arts ).

No, I did not attend the reunion, and I have no interest in doing so.
Although my website started out attempting to round up old postal Marines...I abandoned that effort after the first year or so, and removed "postal" from my site title; the title still exists, however, on numerous sites/links and search engines around the WWW.

Best
