Summary
An inside look at the Marine Corps follows one year in the lives of a single platoon of raw Marine recruits, from their arrival on Parris Island to their first full year as members of the Corps (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Making the Corps visits the front lines of boot camp, Parris Island, South Carolina. Here, old values are stripped away and new, Marine Corps values are forged. Acclaimed military journalist Thomas E. Ricks follows these men from their hometowns, through boot camp, and into their first year as Marines. As three fierce drill instructors fight a battle for the hearts and minds of this unforgettable group of young men, a larger picture emerges, brilliantly painted, of the growing gulf that divides the military from the rest of America.
