Find Out Who "Old Gimlet Eye" Was, and Learn All Kinds of Things about Him!

I've just about quit posting ebooks (without Whispersync audio narration). However, every now and then I run across an ebook that seems to rise above the rest. This is one of them. In part, because the ratings for the book, at both Amazon and GoodReads, are outstanding (and this annotated edition fares better than the non-annotated one). And the 99 cent price doesn't hurt things, either.

There's lots of reading for your 99 cents--256 pages of it!

Old Gimlet Eye (Annotated): The Adventures of Smedley D. Butler, by the polymath-maybe-best-known-as-a-broadcaster Lowell Thomas.

Description
Smedley Butler joined the Marine Corps at age 16 and took part in critical military actions in Cuba, the Philippines, China, Central America, Mexico, and France. He won renown as a battlefield hero and was the most decorated Marine in U.S. history at the time of his death in 1940. Old Gimlet Eye is a boots-on-the-ground account of his many tours of duty, offering invaluable insight into early US military strategy and tactics, weaponry, equipment and many other fascinating field details from the Spanish-American War to World War I and beyond.

This new annotated edition of
Old Gimlet Eye includes original footnotes and images.

*Original footnotes.
*Includes images.



Appears to be self-published. Thanks to GA Russell for creating this thread, giving us a convenient place to park books such as this!

I have long wished to be able to purchase Kindle versions of the old Bantam War Series of books about WWII by the publisher Bantam. It appears that I am finally getting my wish as I recently found two small publishers (The P-47 Press and Bowsprit Books) that appear to have most of them. The best part almost all of the ones I have looked at are around .99 cents with others that go up to around 2.99. I'm posting links to three of them but if you follow the also bought links you will find most of them.

Hellcats of the Navy

https://www.amazon.com/Hellcats-Sea-...9G9CTP17YC0QGQ

Author Charles Lockwood (Sink ‘Em All) brings his unique flair for submarine warfare story-telling to his account of Operation Barney, the secret mission during World War 2 to extend the conflict in the Pacific beyond the Sea of Japan and closer to the enemy’s coastline. (the picture on the cover of this is in direct conflict with what is inside. It is about submarine operations not the F6F Hellcat divebomber.)

The Far Shore By Edward Ellsberg

https://www.amazon.com/Far-Shore-Ann...PVES1J91QJ0P4D

Edward Ellsberg's The Far Shore is the riveting first-hand account of the Allied D-Day landings in France in June 1944. A principal actor in the invasion, Ellsberg describes in detail the massive preparations for the launch of the greatest armada in history. He devotes the second half of his book to an unforgettable real-time account of the bloody D-Day landings

US Military in WW2: The Submarines (Annotated): Rendezvous By Submarine, U.S.S. Seawolf: Submarine Raider of the Pacific and Sink 'Em All

https://www.amazon.com/Military-WW2-...1XFW67RM76H2SP

US Military in WW2: The Submarines presents three classic first-hand accounts of life aboard a US Navy submarine during World War 2.

(I've read all three of these and the third one "Sink Them All" is the best of the three, but they are all worth reading.)

Fixed it I noticed when I switched from my Amazon Smile affiliate link to a regular Amazon link I inserted an extra dot between the www and amazon. Sorry. The only difference between a regular link and the smile link is when I use the smile link they donate a small percentage to the charity of my choice. (Flying Fur Animal Rescue to be exact)

Amazon Smile is not an affiliate link. The charity is linked to your account. If I click on a Smile link from you, it donates to my chosen charity.

I wasn't sure if it would be considered an affiliate link here or not so i changed it. However that does make sense.
