Old Gimlet Eye is the autobiography of early U.S. Marine Corp legend Smedley Butler who, at the time of his death in 1940, was the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. Butler joined the Corps at age 16 and took part in critical military actions in Cuba, the Philippines, China, Central America, Mexico and France.
A veteran of both the Spanish-American War and World War I, Butler’s candid narrative (assisted in the writing by author Lowell Thomas) offers unique insight into the early history of the Marine Corps, making Old Gimlet Eye essential reading for military scientists and fans of military biographies.
