About this title

Synopsis:

George Carrington tales you on a journey- from Sunny Scarsdale, New York; New Zealand; Guadalcanal, Guam, and Iwo Jima; Peking and Tsingtao, China; Seoul and Inchon, Korea; Taipei and Kaohsiung, Taiwan; and Saigon and Danang, Vietnam. Don't forget the Pentagon! He discovers foolishness and stupidity, as well as bravery and heroism. Along the way he runs into President-to-be Jerry Ford, Commandant Gen. Dave Shoup, Gen. Maxwell Taylor, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara; Chiang K'ai-sheck; Lord Louie Mountbatten; and JFK and LBJ

About the Author:

I am a Hotchkiss School, Yale University and American and Oxford degree holder. I was a regular officer in the Marine Corps from 2nd Lt. to colonel. I was aide to Maxwell Taylor, Chairman of the JCS in the JFK and LBJ administrations. I live in Beverly Hills California, very retired at 92, married to wonderful Else C. But I suppose my heart is still back in New England.
