I have stumbled into a hot controversy here. 30+ e-mails about S.L.A.
Marshall and his “ratio of fire.” All of them seem very well-informed, and
they are all over the place on how much of a fraud Marshall was. Nobody
thinks he was totally honest, but the degree to which he was dishonest, and
his results (or “results”) misleading, is much debated. If I had a couple
of days to give over to this, I’d build up an informed opinion. As it is, I
leave it with you and Mr. Google.
