Heinlein - social subversive: Clarifications
A few quick clarifications.

Juan Rico is not "Latino." By "Latin," I mean of South American or Central American origin.

Similarly, I will point out I said "black," not "African American."

My limiting of certain questions to pre-1970 was to make the point about being a social subversive -- especially in novels intended for children.

I have decided that I cannot put a body count on the war crimes, and will so modify the question. Also, since so many people seem distracted by this, I will give one hint. It is not from Starship Troopers and it is the utterly unambiguous murder of enemy combatants who had surrendered -- with no hesitation, compunction or guilt.
How Well Do You Know Heinlien -- Answers
OK, Answers below the cut. I admit I was surprised to see fairly low response to this. Don't people read RAH anymore? If you don't, you should.
