In 1950, North Korean Army forces shocked the world as they streamed across the 38th peninsula by force of arms under the communist regime in Pyongyang. American occupation forces had been withdrawn from the Republic of Korea (ROK) in 1949 leaving a modest group of advisors to the ROK army, whose eight divisions were capable of little more than maintaining internal security. Outnumbered and outgunned, the South was doomed to defeat if America's military might could not quickly be brought to bear. Hastily thrown into battle, U.S. forces finally stabilized a defensive perimeter around the south port city of Pusan. But could they hold it? Addison Terry recalls these perilous times in his exciting memoir, replete with the drama and sacrifice of men in combat.
