Great Court Martial Cases, originally published in 1972, recounts some of the most dramatic court martial cases in history and shows how military trials have not only changed military law, but have affected the very course of American history. From Benedict Arnold to the Mylai Massacre, the exciting cases covered in this book involve such legendary Americans as Stephen Decatur, Jr.; Herman Melville and James Fenimore Cooper; Will Rogers and Fiorello LaGuardia; and World War II heroes such as "Hap" Arnold, Douglas MacArthur, and Dwight D. Eisenhower.
"Great Court-Martial Cases."
Six young people who had worked for the Kennedy administration in 1963, but all in minor jobs, receive a death threat 10 years later for reasons they "will fully understand". Why them? They hadn't even known the president. Then one night Congressman Thomas Medwick is killed. His car veers out of control, and the police rule it an accident. But George Williams, one of those named on the list, knows better. As a deputy assistant attorney general for the Justice Department, and its most skilled investigator, he takes the threat seriously, indeed.
