As the daughter a Marine (WWII & Korea) & mother of one as well (Iraq), I'm familiar with this man & his opinion regarding war. Smedly Butler disapproved of war as only one who has experienced actual combat can disapprove of it. Thank you for reminding us of a man who had courage both on and off the battlefield.

It's a great book, really more of a booklet. It is available in a few places online for free, or you can buy it from your local book store (if you still have one) or Amazon.

If you want to read one of the online versions, I would recommend the one at []

While you are there, dig around the site and find some other very interesting reading (e.g., the books by L. Fletcher Prouty).
