Chesterfield Smith, America's Lawyer

Mary E. Adkins

University Press of Florida

Chesterfield Smith served in the U.S. Army for more than five years; after excelling in training in Kansas and Mississippi, he married his childhood sweetheart and was shipped overseas. Smith, a captain, led an artillery battalion that saw action in France and eventually fought as reinforcements in the Battle of the Bulge. Smith suffered a minor wound in Germany from a Messerschmidt jet plane. He cleaned up an uninhabitable prison camp he found in a German town by forcing the townspeople to switch places with the prisoners until the townspeople had made the prison habitable.
