Product Description

David M. Shoup was a heroic and decorated military hero. After having served stateside and in China during the 1920s and 1930s, Shoup quickly moved up the ranks upon the outset of the Second World War. For his bravery and leadership in the victory at Tarawa in the Pacific, Shoup was awarded the Medal of Honor. Following the war, Shoup continued his service, eventually being named Commandant of the Marine Corps. Yet, despite this clear dedication to his life-long career in the armed services, Shoup became a fervent and outspoken critic of the Vietnam War. His very public opinions won him the respect of protesters and the loathing of many fellow officers and friends.

In this fascinating new biography, historian Howard Jablon chronicles the career of this soldier turned war protester.
