This well-documented and hard-hitting biography of the thirteenth commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps succeeds in converting John A. Lejeune from a near mythical figure in corps history to a flesh and blood officer who helped build the service from a small appendage of the U.S. Navy to an important arm of naval warfare.

Commandant from 1920 to 1929, when he retired from military service to become president of Virginia Military Institute, Major General Lejeune is regarded by many as the man most responsible for the establishment of the modern Marine Corps. In capturing the life and times of this visionary leader who directed the corps toward major amphibious operations, Merrill Bartlett provides vivid insight into the political and military giants of the era and shows Lejeune to be an adroit player of Washington politics and a shrewd manipulator who marshalled the energies and loyalties of his senior officers to accomplish his vision.

One of the better insights about John Archer Lejeune that I have read. Still, some of the opinions, a bit controversial. I am writing a short Novella on Lt Gen Lejeune and the book was helpful.General Lejeune was a complex person and his own book about himself shares little insight into his tenure as commandant and even less into his tenure at VMI. This book helps unravel much of the mystry Lejeune wove into his Reminiscences of a Marine.

Very well written and researched book. Brings a good insight into the era when the Marine Corps transitioned from a small force to what it is today.
