I agree with Mr. Carroll. Illustrated novels were very popular in the nineteenth century (in the works of Charles Dickens and Jules Verne, for example)––this century, not so much. Three of my favorite Marine Corps-related books are the illustrated short stories of John Thomason––Fix Bayonets! (1925), Red Pants (1927), and Marines and Others (1929). In these three volumes, Captain Thomason tells several dozen tales, with the assistance of nearly 250 illustrations. The Remains of the Corps: Volume I includes 134 illustrations.
