Rep., 1952. 176 pp., frontis-map + 17 photo-plates. D.j., 20 x 14cm. A little wear to d.j., o/w V.G. This is a Sergeant’s story of what happened to the First Battalion of The Gloucestershire Regiment from the time it reached Korea, in November 1950, to the grim battle on the Imjin, in April 1951, which brought world fame to the unit, adding new lustre to Colours already covered with Battle Honours. The author gives a vigorous portrayal of what he saw and of the fortunes and hazards he shared with his comrades. The terrain is admirably described, and the plight of the civilians unforgettably evoked.
