Martha Anne Turner, The World of Col. John A. Thomason, USMC


From Belleau Wood to Civil War Scholar!


Martha Anne Turner’s The World of Col. John A Thomason, USMC tells the story of a remarkably eventful life, serving as a “China Marine,” fighting with the Devil Dogs in France, writing the best-selling memoir of art and action Fix Bayonets, and then penning two works of fine Civil War writing, the novel Lone Star Preacher and the biography JEB Stuart.

Turner’s biography is rich in personal detail, and is an essential part of Thomason’s book shelf.

Fine condition.
