Description: America’s “forgotten war” lasted just thirty-seven months, yet 54,246 Americans died in that time — nearly as many as died in ten years in Vietnam. On the fiftieth anniversary of this devastating conflict, James Brady tells the story of his life as a young marine lieutenant in Korea. The Korean War affected the lives of all Americans, yet is little known beyond the antics of “M*A*S*H.” Here is the inside story that deserves to be told, and James Brady is a powerful witness to a vital chapter of our history.
