About the Book

Volume 2 continues the history of the U.S. Marine Corps’ involvement in “small wars” after World War II, beginning with advisory efforts with the Netherlands Marine Korps (1943–1946). The author describes counterinsurgency efforts during the Korean War (1950–1953), the development of vertical assault tactics in the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, counterinsurgency in Southeast Asia (1962–1975), involvement in Central America (1983–1989), and present-day conflicts, including the War on Terror and operations in Iraq and Libya.
