[WW II] Marines in Pacific WWII

Hello Gents,
I am a former Marine, now a student looking for some WWII historians that might be able to help me out. I`m writing a research paper on the specific role the Marines played in the Pacific during WWII.I`m refering to their island hopping campaigns.I`m looking for information to use to support my argument that their role was unique compared to other military units.I`m going to support this with three ``because clauses``.My three reasons will deal with their special training in amphibious warfare, unit organization, and personal sacrifice. Any suggested books or articles or imput would be appreciated.Thanks,
Semper Fidelis,
Al
