The United States Marine Corps is America's best-known military unit, and perhaps the most famous in the world.

Such a long and varied service, and the type of personnel required for such an elite unit, have produced a trove of lore and legendary unparalleled in the world. Albert A. Nofi, the leading force behind Combined Books' acclaimed Civil War Book of Lists, has taken on the task of producing a definitive compendium of Marine Corps facts and statistics.

The Corps' long history is well-represented, with such lists as Greatest Battles, Medal of Honor Winners, Commandants, Marines in American Wars, Greatest Foes, Foreign Marine Corps, Confederate Marines, Marines in Congress, Marines in Space, and numerous others.
