War is a Racket

War Is a Racket, by Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC, 1933

General Butler is the recipient of two, count 'em, two Medals of Honor. Every Marine recruit is well educated in Butler's exploits in Mexico and Haiti. He's held up as a paragon. But no Marine recruit is taught that war is a racket. For some reason, this little book wasn't passed out to us in boot camp. It's too bad; if anyone has earned the right to be heard, General Butler has.
