A military legend from Louisiana. A failed politician working for a railroad company, Lee Christmas gained his military skill from instinct rather than training. He possessed physical courage, fearlessness, and an undisputed amount of self confidence. Whether Christmas was saving himself from execution with a sly insult to his enemies, escaping government spies in a brothel, or bluffing his enemies into submission, he had a reputation that bordered on legend.

From the Back Cover:

A failed politician working for a railroad company, the military skill of Lee Christmas was based on instinct rather than training. He possessed physical courage, fearlessness, and an undisputed amount of self confidence. Whether Christmas was saving himself from execution with a sly insult to his enemies, escaping government spies in a brothel, or bluffing his enemies into submission, he had a reputation that bordered on legend.

In an instance of strategic initiative, Christmas was the first to position his machine gunners with interlocking fields of fire to support his infantry at La Ceiba. This practice was studied throughout Europe and America and was used frequently during WWI.

Hermann Bacher Deutsch (1889-1970), a native of Br�x, Austria-Hungary, began working on the Chicago Journal but soon moved to New Orleans, where he was employed by the Times-Picayune, the States, and the Item and its successor, the States-Item (1918-1970), as associate editor, chief editorial writer, and daily columnist.

About the Author:

Hermann B. Deutsch (1889-1970) was a New Orleans journalist and author born in the town of Brx, Austria-Hungary, now called Most, Czech Republic. He wrote for the New Orleans States-Item for more than four decades and for publications such as the Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Collier's Weekly, and the Literary Digest. Deutsch's books include Pelican's The Incredible Yanqui: The Career of Lee Christmas. He frequently wrote about Louisiana, with a focus on New Orleans and its cuisine.
