A classic account of warfare and captivity in Korea. A frontline account by the Adjutant of the 1st Battalion of the Gloucestershire Regiment (known as the Glorious Glosters) at the Eastern Crossing of Imjin River. A wonderful account by the most qualified of witness.

Overwhelmed after they ran out of ammunition, the dreadful conditions, and interrogations, "new" psychological influence applied in the treatment of prisoners-of-war by North Korea, and the amazing journeys that followed each unsuccessful escape. A compelling read!
