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.

Give Me Tomorrow

O'Donnell wrote a straight forward history story of George company. The battle scene of the charging Chinese reminded me of the 1959 movie "Pork Chop Hill". Lloyd James did a good job of reading this as a fast pace action story. Enjoyed the comments on Chesty Puller, the most decorated marine in the history of the Corp. The cold and mistakes of the high command made the early part of the Koren war difficult for the Marines but they did over come it all.

- Jean "I am an avid eclectic reader."

Excellent

I am a shamed to admit that my reading and knowledge of the Korean War is minimal.

However, reading (listening) "Give Me Tomorrow" has opened my mind and educated me regarding this terrible war. Most people, and I was one of them always referred to this subject as the Korean Conflict. But after reading Mr. O'Donnell's educating work this was no and never will be a Conflict in my eyes again.

Thank you Mr. O'Donnell for educating me and my thanks to all Americans for their service during this war.
