Hampton Sides, “On Desperate Ground: The Marines at the reservoir, the Korean War’s greatest battle”
Hailed by critics as one of the best nonfiction writers of his generation, Hampton Sides chronicles the extraordinary feats of heroism during one of the most harrowing operations in American military history: the Korean War’s battle at the Chosin Reservoir. Sides’ superb account relies on years of archival research and interviews. This is an immediate, grunt’s-eye view of history, enthralling in its narrative pace and powerful in its portrayal of what ordinary men are capable of in the most extreme circumstances.
