From here the road climbs steadily to the wilder expanses of Upper Teesdale, passing pretty villages such as Romaldkirk and Middleton-in-Teesdale, and on to arguably the most majestic waterfall in England, High Force, before crossing the Cumbrian border. Richmond Fourteen miles south of North Farm, Richmond is a gem of a place, a leafy, vibrant town boasting an impressive castle, a vast cobbled medieval marketplace and an elegant Georgian district. It was formed by the Normans in and the town grew up around the castle which still dominates the skyline.
It is said that the walls of the former prison of King William are 11 feet thick and the exhibition centre within the grounds offers an impressive background into the history of this famous landmark.

There is a wonderful Georgian theatre hosting shows to suit all tastes in the town.

Yet his puffery endures, influencing historical analysis and popular history. That he enlisted in the U. Army in is documented, as is his discharge in According to Marshall, he was commissioned as the youngest lieutenant in the American Expeditionary Force and served in the infantry in the Soissons, St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne campaigns. According to Leinbaugh, it was only after the war that Marshall attended an abbreviated Officer Candidate School in France. Given the massive and rapid demobilization of the Army in the months after the armistice, gaining acceptance into this version of OCS was not terribly difficult.
Marshall apparently did receive a commission but left the Army at the end of his commitment. During the 20 years between the two world conflicts, Marshall worked as a reporter for various newspapers.

Selling heroes to the American public has never been particularly difficult, and Marshall mastered the winning formula of the underdog and the common man displaying uncommon attributes. He wrote history in an anecdotal style—not creating a history so much as telling stories. He was the consummate storyteller. Nobody would dispute the fact that Marshall talked to many soldiers, perhaps thousands, who had recently been rotated out of combat.
