Summary
  • "In 1934 Oregon's newly-elected Democratic governor, Charles Henry Martin, quickly turned his formidable talents to attacking labor unions and reformers in Northwest industry. He empowered a secret Red Squad within the Oregon State Police bureaucracy, which was involved in spying and using disruptive tactics against union activists up and down the West Coast."
  • "The author also explores Martin's equally intriguing military career (1887-1927). A graduate of West Point, Martin was at center stage in a number of key events including chasing elements of Coxey's Army, the Philippines acquisition, entering China's Forbidden City during the Boxer Rebellion, commanding the all-black Ninety-second Division after World War I, and perpetuating the Army's discriminatory policies of the 1920s."--Jacket
