Publisher's Summary

Towards the end of the Korean War, 28 American soldiers were inserted into the conflict on a hill, with a company of ROK troops, that is now inside the Demilitarized Zone on the Korean Peninsula. They were on a secret mission to test 'battlefield radar' for the first time, which eventually gave GIs the ability to spot the enemy and direct fire on the battlefield, providing a significant advantage during the war. Shortly after arriving, thousands of Chinese soldiers overran their position. The Americans fought for survival for two weeks and only 14 made it out alive. They were cut off from American forces. They were told to hold and defend their position at all cost. They were Lost Bastards.

Excellent Korean War Novel...

Try asking some of the current generations about the Korean War. If you're lucky, one might mention the Belated -- heroic, brave, gut wrenching & hauntingly beautiful sculptures in Washington D.C... That's exactly how this book makes you feel. We need more great historical reads and authentic authors like this... Quote for the younger generations-- "Fear was the terrible secret of the battlefiled and could afflict the brave as well as the timid...Worse it was contagious, and could destroy a unit before a battle even began"( Halberstem).
