Product description


Ted Barris brings us a vivid account of one of the century's most important, but often overlooked, conflicts. Canada played a key role, and the contributions of this country's brave warriors are recognized at last. (Lloyd Robertson, CTV News)

... transports the reader to the front lines... Barris's book stands as a fitting memorial to an almost forgotten war. (Maclean's)

... readers will enjoy (and admire) the personal recollections of battles where young Canadian soldiers were the difference between defeat and glory the latter being the norm. (Major-General Lewis MacKenzie National Post)

... well-researched, exciting and compassionate... the author leaves the reader with much to ponder. He does this through word pictures that are much more evocative than the yellowed snapshots of the debacle that we have all seen. His description of front-line fighting is at times chilling, similar in many respects to scenes in Saving Private Ryan. (The Globe and Mail) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

In 1950, nearly 25,000, Canadians signed on for a UN-sponsored "police-action" to stop Communist incursion into South Korea. They joined a multi-national expeditionary force that quickly found itself embroiled in a full-scale war. Members of the Canadian navy, airforce and infantry fought with distinction and endured months of bloody stalemate that ultimately stopped the communists but failed to requite the people of the Korean peninsula - with consequences that continue to haunt the world today.

Ted Barris interviewed hundreds of Korean War veterans to gather their stories of heroism and survival, tragedy and absurdity, successes and SNAFUs. He has woven their tales into a fascinating look at a war that many have forgotten.
