The Proud and the Few

The "dogs of war" were unleashed in the Pacific on December 7th, 1941. Now the United States had been attacked and was forced into a worldwide conflagration. After losing Wake, The Philippines and other locations in the Pacific, the United States Marines were called upon to spearhead a prolonged advance across the islands all the way to the Japanese home islands. Now with this game, "The Proud and the Few" you can relive those glorious moments of the Marine history in their victorious advance from one island to another. From Guadalcanal to Okinawa, and even to the shores of the Japanese home islands, join the fight to ultimate victory.
