An excellent book on the Korean War! It seems little is known about these battles and the men who fought in them, but what conditions, what bravery against all odds! Very gripping, yet sobering account of their triumphs and tragedies. A must read for those who like military history.
I liked this story about the Korean War. I found it to be very interesting and would recommend it to others.
From start to finish Patrick O'Donnell had me hooked. I normally only listen to books on the drive to and from work. This history of the Marines of G company was so gripping that I listened all the way through.
The people of the story make you fiercely proud of America's military personnel.
We need more accounts from veterans of the Korean War , so we can be sure it is not forgotten.
