Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication MCDP 1-3 Tactics 30

Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication MCDP 1-3 Tactics 30 July 1997 This publication is about winning in combat. Winning requires many things: excellence in techniques, an appreciation of the enemy, exemplary leadership, battlefield judgment, and focused combat power. Yet these factors by themselves do not ensure success in battle. Many armies, both winners and losers, have possessed many or all of these attributes. When we examine closely the differences between victor and vanquished, we draw one conclusion. Success went to the armies whose leaders, senior and junior, could best focus their efforts—their skills and their resources—toward a decisive end. Their success arose not merely from excellence in techniques, procedures, and material but from their leaders’ abilities to uniquely and effectively combine them. Winning in combat depends upon tactical leaders who can think creatively and act decisively. This book pertains equally to all Marine leaders, whether their duties entail combat service support, combat support, or combat arms. It applies to the Marine air-ground task force commander as well as the squadron commander and the fire team leader. All Marines face tactical decisions in battle regardless of their roles. Tactical leaders must develop and hone their warfighti...

US World War II Amphibious Tactics, Army and Marine Corps, Pacific Theater

US World War II Amphibious Tactics, Army and

Osprey's study of the United States' naval tactics during World War II (1939-1945). The US armed forces were responsible for many tactical innovations during the years 1941–45, but in no field was US mastery more complete than amphibious warfare. In the vast, almost empty battlefield of the Pacific the US Navy and Marine Corps were obliged to develop every aspect of the amphibious assault landing in painstaking detail, from the design of many new types of vessel, down to the tactics of the rifle platoon hitting the beach, and the logistic system without which they could not have fought their way inland. This fascinating study offers a clear, succinct explanation of every phase of these operations as they evolved during the war years, illustrated with detailed color plates and photographs.

First Aid & Health Service Support Operations: U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures

First Aid & Health Service Support Operations: U.S.

Basic battlefield and military first aid training responsibilities are shared by the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. Injuries, wounds, and casualties are similar at the basic level. Additional specialties are addressed as necessary in each individual branch. This field training workbook is used as a quick reference manual for supportive care as well as guidance for the total skills competency required of medical personnel. In addition to providing the most concise information for consistent training and efficient learning, this text also provides guidance for diagnostics and self-testing. It is an indispensable tool in preparing for both standardized competencies testing and real-world practice of medical skills. The materials combined in this book provide complete, easily understandable, and well-planned learning tools for both military and civilian students. The nation’s nursing and medical staff shortage continues to have the potential to negatively impact the quality and safety of patient care both in civilian and military medical treatment facilities. Insufficient Army nursing capacity and in some cases low density specialties can threaten the viability of current and future AMEDD missions. The United States military is recognized internationally as the s...

Helmet for My Pillow: From Parris Island to the Pacific

Helmet for My Pillow: From Parris Island to

“One hell of a book! The real stuff that proves the U.S. Marines are the greatest fighting men on earth!” Leon Uris Robert Leckie signed up for service with the United States Marines on January 5, 1942. Wake Island had fallen and America was still reeling from the tragedy of Pearl Harbor. This vivid and personal account of one marine’s journey through the course of the war in the Pacific in World War Two. Leckie provides vivid, and at times humorous, details of his training in South Carolina, through to being assigned to first terrifying duties as a fighting marine. He was thrust into the heat of battle at Guadalcanal before seeing action across many islands of the Pacific until he was eventually wounded and evacuated from the island of Peleliu. Yet this fascinating autobiography is not simply about Leckie’s fighting life over the duration of the war as it also records the camaraderie of his fellow soldiers, the adventures that he enjoyed during his time off service in Melbourne, Australia, along with the day to day life of a normal marine. “Helmet for My Pillow is a grand and epic prose poem. Robert Leckie’s theme is the purely human experience of war in the Pacific, written in the graceful imagery of a human being who — somehow — survived.” Tom Hanks This work...
