Overview

Valleys of Death: A Memoir of the Korean War by Bill Richardson, Kevin Maurer

From the devastating counterattack at Unsan to the thirty-four months he spent in captivity-a period of years in which giving up surely meant dying-Colonel Richardson's instinct for leadership and stubborn will to survive saw him through one valley of death after another.

Valleys of Death is a stirring story of survival and determination that offers a fascinating, intimate look at the soldiers who fought America's first battle of the Cold War in the unvarnished words of one of their own. Richardson endured many long months of starvation, torture, sleep deprivation, and attempts at indoctrination by the Chinese, yet remained defiant under conditions designed to break the mind, body and spirit of men.
