Full Description:

A Marine who wielded both pen and sword in a long, distinguished career captures the heroism and horror of the early days of the Korean War in this gripping novel. As a young man—with his own experiences in the war still vivid in his mind—Simmons wrote of the complex gamut of emotions and experiences that made this bloody encounter between East and West so unique. He kept the manuscript to himself until the war's fiftieth anniversary, when it was published to critical acclaim. Lauded for bringing a psychological intensity and realism to the war, the novel tells the story of a Marine reserve captain abruptly recalled to active duty to lead a company of Marines in a series of battles from the mud flats of Inchon to the frozen wasteland of the Chosin reservoir.

Edwin Howard Simmons, a decorated veteran of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, served in the USMC from 1942 to 1978, retiring as a brigadier general. Simmons wrote many books, including The United States Marines and Through the Wheat: The U.S. Marines in World War I. He died in May 2007.
