Publisher's Summary

“If I were God, what would you want for Christmas?” With a thousand-yard stare, a haggard and bloodied marine looked incredulously at the war correspondent who asked him this question. In an answer that took “almost forever,” the marine responded, “Give me tomorrow.”
After nearly four months of continuous and bloody combat in Korea, such a wish seemed impossible. For many of the men of George Company, or “Bloody George” - one of the Forgotten War’s most decorated yet unrecognized companies - this would be their last day.
This is the epic story of George Company, Spartans for the modern age. After storming ashore at Inchon and fighting house-to-house in Seoul, America’s last reserve unit found itself on the frozen tundra of the Chosin Reservoir facing an entire division of Chinese troops. Little did this small band of men - green troops who had been rushed through training to bring fresh forces to the war - know they would soon be saviors. This is their story, and it will never again be forgotten.

The boys of Summer Camp….Amazing!!

I would add to the other 5 star comments three things. One, O’Donnell takes time to deliver both the Macro and Micro, detailing interesting behind the scene events. Second, the book is concise and delivers quite the punch for its shorter length. Lastly, O’Donnell really gets it…having spent time with our Marries writing about the battle of Fallujah…I feel he delivers the unique image…the unbelievable hardship and difficulty faced in the Korean War. And to think some of these great men had, on top of the nightmare conditions in Korea…faced epic difficulties in the Pacific fighting the Japanese! Wow... just amazing!!!!

Good purchase

This book tells the story of a Marine platoon, during the Korean War. What makes this book interesting is that we rarely hear stories from this war. The book describes what the men had to endure. Reminiscent of the Battle of Bulge, the struggle and triumph makes this book worth reading.
