    The Last Stand of Fox Company is a fast-paced and gripping account of heroism and self-sacrifice in the face of impossible odds. The authors have conducted dozens of firsthand interviews with the battle's survivors, and they narrate the story with the immediacy of such classic accounts of single battles as Guadalcanal Diary, Pork Chop Hill, and Black Hawk Down.

    Stephen says: "Outstanding story, poor narration"
    "Great lesson in leadership"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Last Stand of Fox Company in three words, what would they be?

    The Last Stand of Fox Company is a true story of U.S. Marines in combat during the Korean war aka the "The Forgotten War". The book was full of ways Marines do what they do best, make the best out of a bad situation. The book did a great job of describing the actions of the heros who gave their lives to protect their fellow Marines and the leaders who guided them through that horrific experience. This is a great book for any aspiring military leader.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Captain William Barbers was a fearless leader that was able to keep his men calm and focused under the kinds of stress most americans will never know. Even after being wounded in action he was carried around on a stretcher to check on the moral and safety of his Marines while under fire. His bravery and devotion to duty are characteristics I truly admire.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nearly the whole book was my favorite. If I must pick one I would say that the part where PFC Cafferata defends his position by batting hand grenades back with an entrenching tool is the best.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could hardly put it down. I run and listen to audio books and would increase the distance from the intended 3 or 4 miles to 6, 7, and some times even 10 miles just to keep listening.


    Any additional comments?

    If you really want to know what war is like from people who lived it, you will enjoy this book.
