An unforgettable read.
That being said, this novel does provide valuable insight into the overall battle. Definately worth the read!!
The Chosin reservoir campaign was a relatively short period in the history of the Marine Corps, but it includes an incredible amount of Marine Corps history. The book excellently documents the events of this largely forgotten time.
Russ tells the complete story, from the overall strategic picture down to individual Marines in foxholes, with a style that reads like a novel. It is a page-turner that is very suspenseful as you relive the first-hand accounts of the dire situations that arose day after day until the inspiring conclusion. You can't help but feel enormous pride in these men and what they did.
This is a masterpiece that should be required reading.
