Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Salmons vivid use of recollections and dramatic quotes brings alive an unjustly forgotten conflict."  —Time Out

The most notorious and celebrated battle in the Korean War, from a British point of view, has never previously been written about at length: this is the story of the Battle of the Imjin River, when the British 29th Infantry Brigade, and above all the Glorious Glosters of the Gloster Regiment, fought an epic last stand against the largest communist offensive of the war. It lasted just three days, by the end of it a battalion of 750 men had been reduced to just 50 survivors. This definitive history is accessible, pacy, narrative, and paints a moving and exciting picture through the extensive use of eyewitness accounts of veterans.
