This is the only work covering the history and lineage of Marine Attack squadrons, from the date of their activation forward, until their deactivation, or the present. Thoroughly researched, it has a complete, extensive bibliography, and the illustrations of the insignia are almost entirely from originals. Many of the photographs have never been published, and many are from the extensive photo archives of Northrup-Grumman. Historically accurate, yet lacking the dry recitation of names, dates, and facts found in other historical works, this very readable book is written to be enjoyed from cover to cover.
