📙 Ice, Fire, and Blood: A Novel of the Korean War by Norman Black, narrator Johnnie C. Hayes


0


Ice, Fire, and Blood, the first novel of veteran journalist Norman Black, brings to vivid life U.S. combat infantrymen's experience in Korea, from late 1950 to spring 1951. The story focuses on one company of an infantry battalion and begins in northwestern Korea. It covers those periods when Chinese armies entered the war and inflicted devastating loses on U.S.-U.N. forces and the subsequent turn-around, early in 1951, after Gen. Matthew Ridgway took command. In the following months, new equipment was received, serious loses were inflicted on the Chinese, and it became clear South Korea would not be overrun by Communism. The book includes the true story of a Korean-speaking Japanese army veteran who worked as a handyman for the battalion at Yokohama Army Base and was allowed to move secretively with the battalion to Korea, where he proved invaluable. ©2012 Norman P.
