Overview

The 25th Infantry Division moved to Korea within hours after the North invaded the South on June 25, 1950. All combat units of the 8th Army arrived in Korea within those first thirty days. Only a handful of officers and enlisted men were veterans of WWII and well trained for combat. The rest of us were mediocre at best. Most felt there would not be another war. After all, we had the bomb. Everyone knew of its destruction capability. Who would dare to confront a country with such potential?

Walter Zweizig enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1948, trained at Fort Dix, and spent two years in Occupied Japan prior to the outbreak of the Korean War. In his journey, he experiences disappointments and joy, hardships and adventure, and reflects on his growing up years on a Pennsylvania Dutch dairy farm, contrasting them to the Japanese and Korean cultures in which he finds himself.

At the core of all great stories is human experience. Zweizig has captured the drama, wonderment, and heartbreak of war in this insightful retelling of one man’s journey from farm to battlefield.

I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed reading One Infantryman’s Journey. I read the entire book in just a few hours, as I could hardly put it down. Great job!

Zweizig joins the Army during peaceful times, but quickly finds himself immersed in war. But his youth, strength, and faith in God guide him through extreme adversity as others crumble around him. Through this soldier’s eyes, you will laugh and cry as you experience America’s forgotten war, a conflict as ruthless and bloody as any other.
