In addition to serving thirty-two years on active duty in the Corps, I was/am very keen on military history, Thus, I have read carloads (and purchased too many) books in my time,
What IS the point? Colonel Jim Bathurst’s book, We’ll All Die As Marines, is very unique as a military history book of the autobiographical nature, but more importantly, it is a superb book on leadership. The reader, whether a serving military person, or someone who aspires a career in the military (esp. Marines) would find this just what you need.
Buy the book for yourself or buy it for a Marine…or both. You will not be sorry. As a gift to a Marine….they will really appreciate it.

Note: In process of moving a number of times after retiring from the Corps, I had to cull mounds of books. I still have Col Jim’s book. It will never be culled.
