Summary
"A very readable but sobering chronicle of the lives, deaths, and memories of nine Marines--all including three Mexican-Americans and one Native American (Navajo)--from the Phelps Dodge copper mining community of Morenci, Arizona. Known as the "Morenci Nine"--because they all joined the Marines and went through boot camp at the same time--only three of them survived the war"--
