James Holden-Rhodes Author- SMART AND FAITHFUL FORCE HENRY CLAY COCHRANE AND THE UNITED STATES MARIEN CORPS 1861-1905

      SMART AND FAITHFUL FORCE HENRY CLAY COCHRANE AND THE UNITED STATES MARIEN CORPS 1861-1905

      by James Holden-Rhodes 

      “HE WAS A REMARKABLE MAN … HE WAS ‘ORNERY’ AND MEANER THAN HELL …

      “James Holden-Rhodes has written a superb account of the life and contributions of a truly fascinating character in the history of our nation and the Marine Corps.  It is the brilliantly told and researched story of Henry Clay Cochrane, a hero, reformer and innovator … a must read for those interested in understanding the historical evolutiong of the Marine Corps into the renowned fighting force it has become …”

      “Jim Holden-Rhodes rescues the history of the Marine Corps from the post-Civil War ‘dark ages’ or organizational stagnation.  The career of Henry Clay Cochrane shows that few brave reformers pushed the Marine Corps to higher standards of appearance, discipline, training and marksmanship.  As it entered its imperial years, 1898-1933, the Marine Corps showed that its soaring self esteem was justified by it’s fighting skills.  Cochrane showed the way.”
