Dog Company Six by Edwin Howard Simmons

A decorated veteran of three wars, and author of two nonfiction classics-The Marines and The U.S. Marines: A History-Edwin Howard Simmons has written a novel of the Korean War that is earning unparalleled praise from both the military and literary communities. Emotionally moving and intensely authentic, it is the story of George Bayard, a Marine reserve captain who is recalled to active duty for a command-and a challenge-he never would have chosen.
