Summary:
"In preparing the story of the Second Marine Division, the author and the members of the Division History Board have had one paramount aim: to tell it, insofar as possible, 'the way it was'. This has meant including a good deal of material which will not interest detached students of military history; it has meant leaving out some details which would be of interest only to such students"--Foreword.
