The Yanks Are Starving: A Novel of the Bonus Army

The Yanks Are Starving: A Novel of the Bonus Army - Glen Craney This is a very long book - to long for the storyline. It was a very slow developing story. Why the author used a third of the book introducing the characters for the true story is a mystery to me.

On the plus side, I had never heard of the veteran's uprising of the 1930's. I have no way of knowing how accurate the story is and to what extent. However, this book certainly paints some powerful people in our government as very bad people. Given how bad they acted in the 1930's. they are surprising heroes only a decade later. How quickly the people forget the bad.

I found the book a worthwhile read since I learned from it.
