Using rigorous archival research and oral accounts, Far Eastern Tour follows the experiences of the Canadian infantry during the Korean War. Discussing the recruitment fiasco in Canada, a training regime inappropriate for Korea, and the stark living and combat conditions in Korea, Brent Watson shows that Canadian troops "soldiered on" despite the hardships.
