Besides the routine rigors of Korean Crisis training, college-boy Chris Madeira must confront the resentments of his commanding officer.

MARINE CORPS BOOT relives, through naive but likable Chris Madeira, Parris Island's look-the-other-way training during the Korean Crisis of 1954. At PI, Chris faces not only the unchecked harassments of that notorious Carolina hell-hole, but also the double jeopardy of a home-town rival as Commanding Officer.

Highlighting his darkest days are letters from "Irish" Morgenstern and his kinship with Leatherneck Leon, a kinky loner destined for global in-famy. (Try guessing his identity.)

Ending the story--and nearly Chris's life--is the midnight maneuver of an out-of-control DI.

Serio-comically, this novel remains the only full-length treatment ever published on "politically incorrect" boot-camp discipline.
