This bibliography cites only those sources which were particularly important and helpful in compiling the monograph. Literally hundreds of records were consulted. Some duplicated others, and some merely confirmed information already available. Preliminary drafts of the monograph were sent to participants in the operations in order to solicit their comments, corrections, and elaborations. A great many individuals contributed invaluable material, which has been cited in the course of the narrative. Lack of space prevents a separate listing of them here. Letters and interviews are on file in the offices of Historical Branch, G-3 Division, Headquarters Marine Corps, and are available to bona fide students within the limitations of security and restrictions imposed by originators.
