Hardback. Intro' by Senator Birch Bayh. The author examines the American military court-martial through nearly 200 years of history. Each of the 12 cases was selected for its legal and historical significance, with over half of them raising the question of justice and fairness. This is a book about a system of justice which has been improved dramatically over the years, but still does not work. From Benedict Arnold to Mylai, spectacular trials have highlighted flaws and led to changes in the system. After 3yrs of research it is the author's conclusion that, despite many critics, there is a need for military justice. Chapter headings include : They Hanged Philip Spencer; when George Armstrong Custer Rode Out of the West; Bad Night at Ribbon Creek; The Sergeant on the Balcony; Henderson's Secret; The American Mayor of Saigon; Levy - and the Green Berets etc., etc. With Index. 291pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Small name insc., lightly browned pp. Vg+
