Beschreibung

"A great read [that] has frozen the events in print that molded great men who stood alone on the mainland of Asia against the first Asian Communist Army to engage the West.”
-From the Foreword by Brig. Gen. Robert L. Scott, Jr., USAF (Ret.), author of God Is My Co-Pilot

The rapid-fire success of the North Korean Army's (NKA) invasion of South Korea, launched on June 25, 1950, and supported by Russia's vaunted T-34 tanks, stunned the world. By August 1, the entire South had fallen, save for the port city of Pusan.

As the enemy prepared to deliver the coup de grâce, only one obstacle remained: Lt. Addison Terry's unit, the famous Wolfhounds of the 27th Regimental Combat Team. Used as a "fire brigade” to shore up imperiled American defenses, these intrepid soldiers were in the thick of it, stopping the NKA's threat of a breakthrough at every turn. Against all odds, the Wolfhounds stood firm, racking up two Presidential Unit Citations within weeks. Terry's account, written while recovering from injuries he suffered during the battle, captures the war in all its grit, sacrifice, and courage.

"A fascinating first-person account of the early days of the Korean War.”
