If your Grandfather was a Marine Captain and you want to know reams about where he was, contact the USMC historical branch. The books out there are written by authors using after action reports and such that the Marine Corps retains, your grandfather would have written some of them. Being legacy, the historians are pretty helpful to requests. Surviving company grade officers were few, so the odds go up that they have documents. The more specific the requests, the easier it is to find. The U.S. Army WWI series has lots of info, but is like watching paint dry finding stuff. Ancestry has lots of info also.
