Summary

The Marine Corps is known for its heroes, and Lieutenant General Lewis B. Puller has long been considered the greatest of them all. His assignments and activities covered an extraordinary spectrum of warfare. Puller mastered small-unit guerrilla warfare as a constabulary lieutenant in Haiti in the 1920s, and near the end of his career he commanded the 1st Marine Division in combat in Korea. In between he chased Sandino in Nicaragua and fought at Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester, and Peleiu." "Chesty is the definitive biography of Lieutenant General Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller, the most famous and most revered Marine ever to serve in the Corps. It is based on thorough research into every aspect of the general's life - Hoffman has been given special access to Puller's personal papers as well as his personnel record - and it presents an objective appraisal of Puller's career and his contributions to the Corps. The book strips away much of the myth that has encrusted his legend, revealing a warrior and leader still worthy of the awards and adulation accorded him by generations of Marines. Its accurate accounts of Puller's deeds and the events in which he participated demonstrate what made him a true hero in every sense of the word.
