THE COLDEST WAR: A Memoir of Korea, by James Brady
America's "Forgotten War" -- Korea -- lasted just 37 months, yet 54,246 Americans died in that time. On the 50th anniversary of this devastating conflict, James Brady tells the story of his life as a young Marine Lieutenant in Korea. 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. Softcover. 248 pages. B/w photos.
