Official Training Manuals, Guidebooks

In this chronicle of the making of an elite fighting force renown for its tough training, Woulfe reveals what goes on during the "Crucible Event", the 54 gruelling hours that complete the process of turning recruits into Marines.   Semper Fi!
As an active duty Marine Corps infantry officer who started in the enlisted ranks, I know that boot camp is important.  However, I also understand that what was successful yesterday may not work today or prepare us for tomorrow.  As the youth we receive from society changes and America prepares to enter the 21st Century as the only true superpower, the United States Marine Corps faces the challenge of taking today's teenagers and preparing them for the stress and chaos of the modern battlefield.  Our answer to this challenge is the Crucible, a fifty-four hour endurance course featuring little food and sleep during thirty-two combat exercises over a forty mile course.  Several of the exercises are named after Marine heroes from past conflicts, and the recruits are led through the Crucible in small groups by one of their drill instructors.  This combination of Marines from the past, present, and future in an arduous and stressful environment -- one where teamwork is essential and honor, courage, and commitment are continuously reinforced -- creates a defining moment for the transformation of a young American into a United States Marine.  This book is the first inside look at the Corps' latest methods for making Marines, but it encapsulates, as well, both the history and ethos of a great American institution.  I hope you enjoy it and look forward to reading your comments.
A reader from Virginia , November 27, 1998
Great!!!!!   This is the best book I've read in a long time!  Woulfe not only describes how the Marines make warriors, but also gives a in-depth battle history of the United States Marine Corps.  Half of the book is history: Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, Grenada, Kuwait, Somalia, Liberia, even Oklahoma City bombing and LA Riots, he covers all of it.

Guidebook for Marines
by Marine Corps Assn Staff
Paperback  (1997)

An essential reference for future or current Marines.   The Guidebook for Marines is an essential reference for anyone who's thinking about enlisting, has enlisted, or any Marine who wants a tool to help keep them sharp.   This book contains everything from basic Marine history, Drill movements, marksmanship with the M16A2 rifle and the M9 pistol, basic first aid, Manual of Arms, to the regulations governing wear of the Marine uniform. This book has it all.

Marines are different: distinct not only from ordinary U.S. citizens but from the ranks of the army, navy, and air force as well.   The difference begins with boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina, where the history and future of the United States Marine Corps intersect in the training of every new recruit.  In Making the Corps, Ricks follows a platoon of young men through 11 gruelling weeks of boot camp as their drill instructors indoctrinate them into the culture of the Few and the Proud.  Many arrive at Parris Island undisciplined and apathetic; they leave as marines.
With the end of the cold war, the role of the American military has shifted in emphasis from making war to keeping peace.  "The best way to see where the U.S. military is going is to look at the marines today," says Ricks, as the other armed forces have begun to emulate the marine model.  To understand Parris Island -- a central experience in the life of every marine -- is to understand the ethos of the Marine Corps.  Ricks examines the recent changes in the Standard Operating Procedures for Recruit Training (the bible of Parris Island), which indicate how the corps is dealing with critical social and political issues like race relations, gender equality, and sexual orientation.   Making the Corps pierces the USMC's "sis-boom-bah" mythology to help outsiders understand this most esoteric and eccentric of U.S. armed forces. --Tim Hogan
