Synopsis

Mid-Century Warrior A Soldier's Journey to Korea by Warren, G. MacDonald

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 point of view of the grunt soldier, and not from the high command. Paperback issue.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
