I can't wait for this one. Not a lot written about the Marine Corsair Units in 1943.

Re: The Fighting Corsairs: The Men of Marine Fighting Squadron 215 in the Pacific during WWII

There is always Robert Sherrod's History of Marine Corps Aviation in World War 2. Second edition updates the original 1949 edition.

Enjoy!

Frank.

Well, I co-authored it (I wrote the part dealing with the operational service), so I can vow for it. Everything I wrote there is primarily based on the squadrons' war diaries. Plus lots of photos you won't find in other publications.
Here's how the book looks inside:
