MARINE The Life of Lt Gen Lewis B Puller USMC - Chesty - Ret. Author:Burke Davis From the dust jacket: "Of Lewis B.'Chesty' Puller, a Commandant of the Marine Corps said: 'He's about the only man in the Corps who really loves to fight. I'll go further: He's the only man in any of our services who loves fighting.' — Chesty Puller rose from private to lieutenant general, and in almost forty years of service won five Navy Crosse... more »s (more than any aother man) and more combat decorations than any Marine in history. In twenty-seven years of foreign duty he became a hero to men in ranks as had no other Marine officer. One young officer in Korea said of Puller; 'I'd follow him to hell-and it looks like I'm going to have to.'
He lived through more than one hundred combats in the banana Wars of Haiti and Nicaragua, ...he commanded the Horse Marines in Peking, in Shanghai, at Pearl Harbor and in Guadalcanal, and in Korea, his exploits became Marine legends."« less
