Medals lost and found, A Hill Called WHite Horse (book review)
« on: December 22, 2021, 08:10:36 PM »
Gents, my father-in-law sent me another installment of his stories of the Korean War, this one mostly afterwards. He also sent me a book about a battle he had a part in back in '52. I reviewed it here.

The Battle of White Horse doesn't get much coverage in English because the main weight of the three-division Chinese offensive fell on the ROK 9th Division. This book is mainly about the US Army forward observers who were imbedded with the ROKs. It was a gnarly fight.
And the glorious general led the advance
With a glorious swish of his sword and his lance
And a glorious clank of his tin-plated pants. - Dr. Seuss

Thanks for sharing.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.
