Summary
This is an incredibly detailed and accurate account of one man's experiences as a National Service soldier in the British army during the 1950's. From the early days as a new and inexperienced recruit who was somewhat reluctant to leave home, it follows his journey through basic training and then half way around the world to the battlefronts of the Korean War. On arrival in Korea he was assigned to the Counter Bombardment Troop, a division of the Royal Artillery and mobilized to the conflict zone. The seasons and battle conditions in Korea varied considerably during his time, including the ceasefire and ensuing tense standoff, which is still present today. The author has written this book six decades after the events, which makes the accuracy even more impressive. He has also been able to include some original photographs, which add immense value to the historical record this book creates. This book is sure to bring back memories to anyone who was in Korea at the time, and will be of interest to the descendants of Korean War Veterans, as it tells the story of the day to day army life and not just the battles. This is an important part of the history of the Commonwealth and the United Nations and their efforts to maintain peace and order in the world, which does not always turn out the way it was intended. The efforts, suffering and sacrifices of the people involved in these events must not be forgotten
