Summary
This book is an expose of the largest, most lethal drinking water contamination in U.S. history, and the 30-year denial and lack of response by military authorities. While the big bad corporation has often been the offender in many of the world's greatest environmental disasters, in the case of the mass poisoning at Camp Lejeune, the culprit is a revered institution: the U.S. Marine Corps. For two decades now, revelations have steadily emerged about pervasive contamination, associated clusters of illness and death among the Marine families stationed there, and military stonewalling and failure to act. The author's investigation creates a suspenseful narrative from the individual stories, scientific evidence, and smoldering sense of betrayal among those whose motto is undying fidelity. He also raises far-reaching and ominous questions about widespread contamination on U.S. military bases worldwide. -- Provided by publisher
