    Book details


Aided by letters saved by his mother in 1950 and 1951, a retired physician looks back more than fifty years to give an insightful and candid account of his experiences while serving as the1st Battalion Surgeon and later as the Regimental Surgeon of the 7th Infantry Regiment of the 3rd Infantry Division during the Korean War. The 'Forgotten War' has been rendered memorable by the many stories of courage and endurance, suffering and sorrow, human failings with self inflicted wounds, inept leadership, and friendly fire errors. But the process of war culled the cowards and brought to the top those capable of brilliant and sacrificial leadership at squad, platoon, company, battalion and regimental levels. Attacking and retreating north, south, east and west, in freezing winter and summer mud ever being engaged in fighting for territory. Yet in spite of it all, there was GI humor, as well as enabling and ennobling faith revealed in the midst of the carnage. This is an old doctor-soldier's story that has been lauded, verified and amplified by other old soldiers to make enjoyable reading.
