Chesty Puller enlisted in the Marine Corps at age 20. He chased bandits in Haiti and Nicaragua, commanded the Horse Marines in Peking, battled his way from island to bloody island in the Pacific and fought the most savage rear guard action of the Korean War. He became a legend in his own time, yet was forced into early retirement at the rank of Lt. General. He was popular with his troops but he earned many enemies in Washington. When war was done they no longer needed a fighter. Here is a true tale of a real-life hero. 4x7, 339 pp., soft cover.
