Coldest War, The by James Brady

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Coldest War, The America s forgotten war lasted just thirty seven months yet Americans died in that time nearly as many as died in ten years in Vietnam On the fiftieth anniversary of this devastating conflict James Brady tells the story of his life as a young marine lieutenant in Korea In seeking to avoid the draft nineteen year old Jim Brady volunteered for a Marine Corps program that made him a lieutenant in the reserves on the day he graduated college He didn t plan to find himself in command of a rifle platoon three years later facing a real enemy but that is exactly what happened after the Chinese turned a so called police action into a war The Coldest War vividly describes Brady s rapid education in the realities of war and the pressures of command Opportunities for bold offensives sink in the miasma of trench warfare death comes in fits and starts as too accurate artillery on both sides seeks out men in their bunkers constant alertness is crucial for survival while brutal cold and a seductive silence conspire to lull soldiers into an often fatal stupor The Korean War affected the lives of all Americans yet is little known beyond the antics of M A S H Here is the inside story that deserves to be told and James Brady is a powerful witness to a vital chapter of our history
