Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book spans the 100-year period from 1850 up until the end of the Korean War. The author successfully transports you back into the history and customs of a tumultuous era.

You are treated to a colorful picture gallery of fascinating and real life portraits of events and people. You become a participant in the battles of World War 1 at Messines Ridge and Chateau Thierrey, the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, the poverty and living conditions during the Great Depression, and the patriotism of a great and united nation during World War II.

Mr Cutro presents the reader with a kaleidoscope of fascinating characters from gangsters, bank robbers, scoundrels, and picaresque children with whom he shared life on the Streets of New York.

You are given a "Ringside seat" as you view one of the bloodiest battles in military history fought under unbelievable weather conditions and against overwhelming odds in the rugged frozen mountains of North Korea.
