War is a Racket

He died five years after publication as the most decorated Marine in U.S. history until that time, having received not one but two Congressional Medals of Honor.

Faint one-inch diameter moisture mark at black titling upon front board. Library blind stamp atop title page, otherwise clean and unmarked with moderate wear to publisher's red buckram.
