Mother Green and her fighting Machine (The US Marine Corps (pronounced "core" not "corpse" as Obama thinks) for the uninitiated) believes that an educated mind is simply another weapon in the arsenal of her warriors and that is a fact, especially in today's world where Leftists, from Obama on down to the Occupy the world morons, don't know the truth and could not TELL the truth, if their miserable lives depended on it.

Thus, the Gunny is currently reading:

1.  "WASHINGTON - A Life," by Ron Chernow. So far, it is an absolute jewel of intense historical research. If you dig The Father of Our Country, this read is for you.

2.  "Valley Forge," by Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen. A preview of this looks good. Something that ALL AMERICANS should read so that they KNOW the sacrifices that were made for following generations of Americans. Oddly enough, only the WaPo gave the book a crappy review! That means IT IS A GREAT READ!

Get busy fellow patriots. 


  1. Good stuff.Haven't found Cheney's book yet,but THERE is one to add to the list,if the excerpt I read is any indication.

  2. Gunny,

    As an avid reader of American history, I have read several books on Washington. Truly a great man, humble, honest, and faithful. America needs to cut the federal holidays back to Washington's Birthday, Christmas, and of course Independence Day. The rest of them are just bowing to the unions.

  3. Gunny,

    I have read both "Washington-A Life" and "Valley Forge". But might I also suggest the following for you:

    1. "The Winter Soldiers", by Richard Ketchum; an older book well worth reading if you have not read it. Written about Washington and the Continental Army after the fall of New York.

    2. "A Devil of a Whipping, The Battle of Cowpens", by Lawrence Babits; one of my favorite books on the Revolution. One reason being that my great-great-great-great grandfather was there in the skirmish line, 150 yards ahead of the militia line and approx. 300 yards ahead of the main line.

    I also recently finished "Guadalcanal" by Richard Frank.

  4. Just finished "With the Old Breed at Peleliu and Okinawa" by Eugene Sledge. Working on "Six Frigates: The Epic History of the Founding of the US Navy". Next up is "The Book of Five Rings" by Myamoto Musashi.

  5. All you WWII history buffs.
    May I recommend:
    "Day of Infamy"
    "Incredible Victory"
    Walter Lord.
    He gives a different perspective than most historians. He actually went and interviewed privates and seamen as well as admirals and generals and then relates their stories as the battles unfold.
