I have read it and I think that Marty Russ had done an excellent job, and
yes, he is hard on the Army, and deservedly so. Anyone who is knowledgeable
about the Korean War will have to agree that Ned Almond was a complete
zilch, totally incapable and promoted by the Army beyond the rank he should
have been, PFC, and most likely a not very good one, at that.
Thank you for your balanced and neutral observation, Ben.
I am more than a bit knowledgeable about the Korean War and feel quite
differently than you do about Almond. While I certainly do not view him as
the War-Winning Weapon, I am still controlled enough that I am capable of
evaluating his pluses, as well as his minuses.
