    Hampton Sides specializes in nonfiction that reads like the best fiction It is about the battle of the Chosin Reservoir in the Korean War And I had no idea how tough that battle was No idea.My favorite quote from a war is Lieutenant Chesty Puller who said, The enemy s are on our left, they are on our right, they re in front of us, they re behind usthey can t get away this time This is that battle I knew

    Wonderfully written and brief historical narrative of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir that is filled with heart, turmoil, and respect for the doers at the scene All the soldiers, the civilians, the prisoners of war, the generals fighting beside their men it s clear that Sides wants you to know that they are the real treasures of integrity.Even better, On Desperate Ground includes opinions of post WWII desegregation while highlighting s


  8. says:

    Hampton Sides masterfully tells the story of the Chosin Campaign If I have a criticism it is that I felt that while telling a slightly broader story than what is told in The Last Stand of Fox Company, it doesn t quote go wide enough to enter new territory However, as a ...
