While cleaning out old magazines and other items, I came across a book I had forgotten that I had; I think I won it a long time ago in a book karma.
Well here it is:

RETREAT HELL!
By Jim Wilson

It's the story of the 1st Marines in Korea and the attack in another direction.

Post your name and I'll pick one out of the hat on Sept 11.

WINNER: tinman, A pm was sent to him.

I think I'm the one that passed it on to you.. so don't throw my name in the pot.
If it's the one I remember it is mostly first person accounts of the Chosen Reservoir.... which by the way the Corps claims is the most dynamic battle they ever fought... now mostly forgotten.... the final numbers are staggering.... 5,000 U.S. casualties.., just over a 1000 dead.. the best estimate of the other side was something like 42,000 Chinese soldiers killed.
