Availability: Ready to download

While current events have focused the public's attention on Korea once again, many veterans of the conflict that occurred there half a century ago worry that their time spent fighting in the "Forgotten War" will not be remembered or understood unless their story is told. Award-winning nonfiction author Linda Granfield has collected the personal accounts of 32 men and women While current events have focused the public's attention on Korea once again, many veterans of the conflict that occurred there half a century ago worry that their time spent fighting in the "Forgotten War" will not be remembered or understood unless their story is told. Award-winning nonfiction author Linda Granfield has collected the personal accounts of 32 men and women who served with the Canadian and U.S. forces in Korea during the years 1950-53 and has described the main events of the war.   The veterans in this book represent different branches and aspects of the military, including medical, supplies, infantry, and naval.

    The trench line with its bunkers and grimy faces there Where if you were observant, you saw the burnt-out stare. The pathway from the trenches that led to no-man's land, A torn and barren piece of ground, destroyed by human hand. Letters and poems by veterans. Worth a read.

    Truly interesting stories from Korean War veterans from all over the place and even one from a woman who was one of the children that used to receive chocolate from US soldiers. It really was an interesting read that I suggest everyone reads and be prepare because this is not a Hollywood book.
