The story of the 55,000 men who served in the Corps during World War One is told in ‘Britain’s Sea Soldiers, A Record of the Royal Marines during the War 1914-1919’ by H E Blumberg. Blumberg was well placed to tell this tale; he served throughout the War and retired as a General. Published in 1927 and based largely on accounts of Marines written by Marines his work is an epic account of this seminal period in our history. Almost every action undertaken by the Corps is described in enormous detail, including the names of all the participants who were decorated. With the original long out of print and lacking an index, the Royal Marines Historical Society has digitally reformatted the book and undertaken the mammoth task of adding an index. So now you can easily find your relatives and/or people/ships/units/actions you are particularly interested in. Over 500 pages with numerous maps and illustrations. Published to mark RM350 and the centenary of World War One
