The one I'm really looking forward to starting is: "With the Help of God and a Few Marines" by Brig Gen Albertus W Catlin, USMC[Ret]. This memoir was written by Gen Catlin in 1919 while the repercussions of the war were still spreading. Catlin was the Colonel of the 6th Marine Regiment and was wounded through the right lung during the fight. This should be an interesting read since it was written so soon after the battle for Belleau Wood.
|Interestingly enough the picture on the cover features an Army gun crew manning a 37mm gun during the short period that the 7th Infantry Regiment relieved the Marines for 5 days during the action.|
The last one, and one that was pointed out to me on TMP, is "Through the Wheat, The US Marines in WWI" by Brig Gen Edwin H. Summers, USMC [Ret] and Col Joseph H. Alexander, USMC [Ret]. While I think there will still be a focus on Belleau Wood this one appears to encompass most of the actions that the USMC participated in during their time in France, Belleau Wood, Soissons and Mont Blanc are all mentioned on the jacket.
Looks like I will have some reading material for the next couple of weeks at least!.
