Plagiarized scandalLate in Stephen Ambroses life, there had been evidence of plagiarism in manyof his published writings and other work. He was first accused in 2002, ofplagiarizing several passages in his book, The Wild Blue. Fred Barnes author ofThe Weekly Standards conflicted and defend the Wings of Morning by HistorianThomas Childers. It Wasnt until two days that Stephen wrote an apology onwebsite New york Times of his quotation errors in his book. This was a lead tovaluable research of a disappointing discovery about him as a Plagiarized bookthief. At the being of the research seven of his books were copied from twelveauthors. As media extended more research and had found even more plagiarizedacts and unexplained answers from Stephen Ambroses Citizen Soldiers Passages in Stephen. (Simon & Schuster, 1997) and their counterparts in an earlier work, Beyond the Beachhead (Stackpole Books, 1989), by Joseph Balkoski. Ambrose, pg. 40: "Suddenly, he gave a whoop and raced forward, the squad following, yelling like wild men. As they tossed grenades into the windows, Cota and another man kicked in the front door, tossed a couple of grenades inside, waited for the explosions, then dashed into the house. The surviving Germans inside were streaming out the back door, running for their lives." Balkoski, pg. 155: "Suddenly, the general and his group raced forward, screaming like wild men, hurling grenades in the windows. Cota and another man kicked in the front door, tossed a few more grenades inside, waited for the explosions, and then disappeared into the house. As the rest of Cotas team followed him inside, the Germans streamed out the back and ran for their lives." 6.
