Marine : The Life of Chesty Pu

Marine : The Life of Chesty Pu

Description

He was too tough even for the Marine Corps Chesty Puller enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1918 at the age of 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, led the landing at Inchon, and fought the most savage rearguard action of the Korean War. He became a legend in his own time, yet was forced into early retirement with the rank of lieutenant general. Why? No officer every inspired greater courage, loyalty, and devotion from his men, pushed them harder or served them better. But this popularity added to his blunt honesty earned him many enemies in Washington, and when the war was done they no longer needed a fighter like Chesty. Here is the explosive true story of the most courageous and controversial commander of them all--the fabulous tale of a real-life hero.
