Sergeant Lionel “Chooch” Pinn was an American warrior, an Osage Indian whose career as an army sergeant met the high standards set by his father’s example as a World War I veteran. Reared in the crucible of the Great Depression and case-hardened in hand-to-hand combat against the Imperial Japanese Army in WWII, Pinn went on to fight as a foot soldier in Korea, Laos, and Vietnam. Pinn recounts these wars as only an infantry soldier could. His gritty account of fighting in distant corners of the world is a journey through America’s tumultuous last half of the 20th century. Sgt. Pinn’s memoir, exciting, horrifying, upsetting, is a testament to the uncompromising fighting spirit of U.S. soldiers.
