The Korean War was the first major armed clash between the Free World and Communst forces.  This book contains an anthology of articles that focus on those Marines who fought and died in what some historians somteimes characterized as the "forgotten war".  Historians, especially military historians, students researching the Korean War, and veterans may enjoy this text with short articles, interpersed with photos and maps.  These articles represented in short stories will take you back in time to experience the combat situations from these Marines that fought for the freedom of South Korea through United States support during this conflict.

Review:

 Review from Goodreads:

Jerome rated it 4 stars and had this to say, "I had two cousins that were in the Marines in Korea. I myself and another cousin joined the Marines in 1954, so this is an interesting topic for me.

As for the book; It has a lot of photographs I have never seen before and is far more detailed than most as it covers the air wing as well as the ground troops of the first Mar. Div. FMF which I later served with."
