Puller, USMC free download ⊡ Ebook By Jon T Hoffman ⋨ The first biography since Burke Davis s uncritical Marine 1962 , this engrossing biography by Hoffman Marine Corps Historical Ctr effectively portrays Chesty Puller 1898 1971 as an enduring icon of the U.S Marine Corps His 37 year career included engagements with bandits in Haiti, rebels in Nicaragua, Japanese Imperial forces on Guadalcanal, New Britain, and Peliliu, and North Korean and Red Chinese armies in Korea Puller s legendary reputation is based on fearlessness, uncompromising leadership, and an ability to gain the respect and affection of his enlisted men The author celebrates these qualities but also offers a balanced discussion of Chesty s questionable traits, like his continuing disparagement of staff officers and military education courses and his penchant for costly frontal assaults against an entrenched enemy Tender family correspondence allows readers to get beyond Puller s crusty exterior Hoffman s research efforts into untapped sources, map selections, and detailed battlefield accounts are the cardinal strengths of this definitive biography Recommended for military collections in all libraries John C Edwards, Univ of Georgia Libs., Athens Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.Lionized by the Marine Corps, the decorated, barrel chested Lewis Puller had a career that virtually defined what a marine should be Although this thorough biography has a quasi official imprimatur the author is a marine it is not hagiographic and occasionally renders serious criticism of the hero Puller s reputation as an exceptionally aggressive unit leader was established in the 1920s and 1930s by his performance in combat during U.S interventions in Haiti and Nicaragua, but it was during Pearl Harbor that the Puller legend took off Although immobilized by a shrapnel wound during the ghastly Battle of Peleliu in 1944, he ordered frontal assaults that resulted in the loss of than half his regiment Also covered is his doughty leadership in the Korean War at Inchon, Seoul, and the disaster of the Chosin Reservoir Hoffman has succeeded in objectively folding his subject s faults into a work that will reinforce Puller s iconographic stature as the Marine Corps ultimate warrior For libraries near a marine base, the best defense is a good offense buy it by the box Gilbert Taylor
