'Forgotten war' not forgotten
To experience ground combat at its meanest and toughest is to be a warfighter with a U.S. Marine Corps rifle company -- the 'grunts'. Author Simmons, who has seen it all time and again as a decorated Marine leader during World War II, Korea and Vietnam, provides the reader an opportunity to join Dog Company Six as it fights it way from Inchon to the bitter cold battle at the Chosin Reservoir, led by a school teacher Marine reservist called back to active duty and put in command of Dog company. Will this reserve captain prove himself a worthy company commander and combat leader to earn the respect and regard of his initially skeptical battle-experienced officers and men? The reader has 300 exciting, well-written pages to decide for him or herself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
