New addition to the "Commandant of the Marine Reading List, 2011" Major General James E. Livingston received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his role as an infantry company commander at Dai Do, Vietnam, during a three-day grinding battle of attrition in which the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, numbering only 800 men, victoriously battled 10,000 or more NVA. His remarkable life and career is recounted in a book that has it all: exciting first-person eyewitness account of historic battle; the history of the development of tactics and strategies used in today s war on terror; and a compelling story of leadership in action and individual courage in combat."show more

Review quote

"LEATHERNECK MAGAZINE" "Marine leaders and those who seek to lead will surely benefit from this book. The often blunt, direct style is refreshing and makes it an easy read. The pearls of wisdom are there as is the dramatic battle leadership examples." "POST AND COURIER " "Noble Warrior is two parts U.S. military history, with exciting first-hand accounts of critical battles, and one part opinion narrative regarding the state of affairs in America today, chiefly military and political affairs."show more
