Scarce, wonderful 1940 United States Marine Corps “China Marines” recruitment brochure. The brochure describes a short history of the China and Japan controversies, a brief look at the lifestyle and sports offerings for the Marine’s. The brochure regards time spent in China as a life changing experience. “Thousands of Marines have gone there, and have come back home, bringing with them a knowledge of the country that cannot be gleaned from books, and carrying in their sea-bags quaint curios they have picked up in Peiping, Shanghai, or Tientsin”. The reverse features a small list of recruiting stations around the country, and date of print “11-29-40”.
