toughest campaign of the Korean WarDrawing on interviews with the surviving members of George Company, O Donnell graphically details the rigors of battle in the brutal Korean winterWhile he does not underplay the horrors of the war, and does justice to the lighter moments that men remember years later, the author shines when he captures such catch in the throat moments as when the Fifth and

heroism O Donnell brings it to vivid life Kirkus Reviews First Sergeant Rocco Zulloisn t the only marine portrayed with great skill herePlace this book beside We Were One in the certainty of
