Armed with M1 rifles, bayonets, and a few hand grenades, young soldiers from different units, operating without command, come together as The Stragglers. Take a journey into the trenches in this fascinating true story of a group of misplaced soldiers fighting courageously as other American troops withdrew from the city of Chinju, South Korea. Charles C. Smith recalls the story of his 17-year-old self, the lone survivor from a battle that took place more than 50 years ago. A rag-tag group of soldiers solidifies as The Stragglers. As lives are lost, honor and courage are upheld.

Poorly written and poorly read
Rush Limbaugh fan
no. Author did not do enough research, just pleaded with his audience to do his research for him. Far too many details were left out.
He restarts sentences and mispronounces words.
His praise for right wing conservatives was irrelevant to the story being told and distracted from it. His current political beliefs do a disservice to his comrades who died in battle in Korea - it is their story which should be told, not today's politics left or right.
