Doug Stanton: John Wayne Fan
Mark Safranski has a mini-review up of Doug Stanton’s Horse Soldiers.
Not having read the book, I don’t have anything substantive to add. I had previously mentally noted that Horse Soldiers was also the name of a classic John Wayne movie but figured it was a coincidence — until I saw the bottom blurb that he had previous written a book called In Harm’s Way which, of course, is also the name of a classic John Wayne movie.
Any guesses as to the next book? Marry up a John Wayne movie title with a one-sentence subtitle in Stanton’s genre to play along. The Green Berets is hereby ruled ineligible on account of being too obvious.
