Overview

The Japanese have led a heavily armored assault against the Chinese city of Shunkien, pounding wreckage into ashes and wiping out a city dating back to Genghis Khan. One of the few buildings still standing is the small American consulate, now packed with one hundred and sixteen frightened American refugees. Food is low and deadly Asiatic cholera is starting to run rampant, with carnage and corpses piling up in the streets. Two hundred miles away, the USS Miami drops anchor, well equipped with the needed gold to buy food and a cholera serum to prevent disease and death. The dilemma is that should the Marines take military action to rush supplies to the consulate, it could force the US into an all-out battle with the Japanese. Marine Gunnery Sergeant James Mitchell and Private First Class Spivits instead are ordered to conduct a treacherous supply mission facing impossible odds to reach and rescue the trapped Americans.

    Hubbard's imagination was so keen, he turned it into a religion,

    Hubbard's imagination was so keen, he turned it into a religion, Dianetics. Church of Scientology. No wonder followers such as Tom Cruise are soo bizarre! And don't forget the commercials from the '80's, Dianetics, the 'answer is on page, 258.' Right, okay L.Ron Hubbard. BTW, this guy was friends with Alister Crowley. Great minds think alike. Not. Garbage!

    Orders is Orders is great!

    Hubbard puts fun, vigor and life into writing. He is so refreshing among so many plodding brooding styles that exist today.

    Great story! Surprizing.

    This was a lot of fun. I was surprized how involved I became with the characters. It was also a great look at the power of determination against all odds in a very colorful setting. Great Read. I recommend it.

    "Orders Is Orders" was published originally in Decembe

    "Orders Is Orders" was published originally in December, 1937 in Argosy Weekly. In "The Hero With A Thousand Faces," Joseph Campbell explores the theory that significant myths in many cultures around the world survived because they all share a fundamental structure, which Campbell calls the monomyth or the hero's journey. Similarly, pulp fiction contains a predictable narrative structure: the hero, the trusty sidekick, the romantic interest, and the seemingly, unattainable mission. The narrative plot in "Orders Is Orders follows this typical structure. The non-stop action begins in China in the 1930's, during the Japanese invasion. James Mitchell, a tough marine gunnery sergeant along with private first class Toughey Spivits have been ordered to embark on a treacherous 200 mile mission to deliver cholera anti-serum and gold to the American consulate in Skunkien. Whiskey addiction, a femme fatale, a reverend, and impossible odds complicate their military mission in this fictional account of courage and heroism in the face of adversity.
