Overview

Pulp History brings to life extraordinary feats of bravery, violence, and redemption that history has forgotten. These stories are so dramatic and thrilling they have to be true.

 

In DEVIL DOG, the most decorated Marine in history fights for America across the globeā€”and returns home to set his country straight.

 

Smedley Butler took a Chinese bullet to the chest at age eighteen, but that did not stop him from running down rebels in Nicaragua and Haiti, or from saving the lives of his men in France. But when he learned that America was trading the blood of Marines to make Wall Street fat cats even fatter, Butler went on a crusade. He threw the gangsters out of Philadelphia, faced down Herbert Hoover to help veterans, and blew the lid off a plot to overthrow FDR.

    WHO SAID HISTORY HAD TO BE BORING?

    The pulp fiction approach to history is a dynamic that invigorates and entertains. I can easily see these titles sparking a new light in younger readers, and re-igniting a dampening flame in more mature ones. General Smedley Butler was one of the most fascinating characters in American History-- yet how many Americans know him? Especially today, as we question the wisdom of war, Gen. Butler's insights are both rare and welcome. If you enjoy being entertained, you'll enjoy this book!
