    In November, 1934, Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC (Ret) appeared before the House Un-American Activities subcommittee in New York City. He testified that he had been approached by representatives of a group of influential businessmen to lead a junta and take control of the nationalís capital, removing President Roosevelt from office.

    Though taken seriously by the Congressmen, for the most part, the national press hounded and ridiculed the general.

    Transcripts remaining are so fragmented that little is left. This novel, by adding several fictitious characters and events, suggests ways the information the committee obviously had could have been obtained.

    The particulars of General Butlerís military and civilian careers contained in this work are accurate.
