Mid-Century Warrior

by W., G. MacDonald

Mid-Century Warrior Synopsis

This is a memoir account of the author's journey from a seventeen-year-old school boy to a combat soldier during the Korean War. Reflecting back to the summer of 1950, utilizing his notes, U.S. Army records, and his memory, he has drawn a picture in words of his movement from the easy-going classroom life of high school, to an infantry-armor trained combat soldier. He takes you into his family background, and the why of his enlistment, and carries the reader through basic, advanced training, and cadre duties of a 1950's army life. An assignment to a combat infantry regiment in a very hostile environment, with an enemy and weather that causes heavy casualties, is described in blunt detail. The combat described is real, and from the view point of the grunt soldier, and not from the high command. Color jacket hardcover binding.
