Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The Author, a young conscript, fought with the Glorious Glosters at the legendary Imjin River battle. Heavily outnumbered by the Chinese and subjected to 'human-wave' infantry attacks, he and his colleagues suffered the trauma of being over-run And The vast majority of those who were not killed became POWs. This serious reverse of fortunes shocked post-war Britain but the bravery of the Battalion caught the public's imagination. The inhuman treatment suffered at their captors' hands by the survivors, including the author, has possibly never been fully realised. This memoir written from the perspective of a fighting soldier will surely bring home some most unpalatable truths. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: The Author, a young conscript, fought with The Glorious Glosters at the legendary Imjin River battle. Heavily outnumbered by the Chinese and subjected to 'human-wave' infantry attacks, he and his colleagues suffered the trauma of being over-run and the vast majority of those who were not killed became POWs. This serious reverse of fortunes shocked post-war Britain but the bravery of the Battalion caught the public's imagination. The inhuman treatment suffered at their captors' hands by the survivors, including the author, has possibly never been fully realized. This memoir written from the perspective of a fighting soldier will surely bring home some most unpalatable truths.

Über den Autor: David green was a National Serviceman who served with the Glosters during the Korean War. After a successful period on the front line he was part of their heroic stand on the Imjin River, and was one of five hundred survivors who were taken prisoner when their positions were finally overrun. This isn't just a prisoner of war story - Green isn't captured until the second half of the book, with the first half spent tracing his training after he was called up, his trip to Korea and his experiences of combat between reaching the front and the battle of the Imjin River. One of the most interesting points to emerge from the book is that Green and his fellow prisoners seem to have found it easier to deal with captivity than with the possibility of freedom, which introduced a new level of uncertainty into their lives, along with the prospect of having their hopes dashed if the negotiations had stalled or fallen apart. Green acknowledges that he was lucky to have been held in one of the better camps, and not to have suffered from the worst mistreatment within that camp. Ironically he appears to have been better treated during a period of forced labour (after a failed escape attempt) than when he was in the main camp, at least in terms of food and activity. I was also intrigued by the idea that most of the prisoners had heard stories of the atrocities committed against POWs by the Japanese during the Second World War, and were thus relieved when the Chinese didn't behave quite so badly. - History of War

Buchbeschreibung Pen & Sword Books Ltd. Paperback. Buchzustand: new. BRAND NEW, Captured at the Imjin River: The Korean War Memoirs of a Gloster, David Green, The Korean War was the only time that the Cold War seriously 'ignited' yet it remains largely ignored by historians and publishers. Few people today realise the intensity of the fighting, the appalling conditions that prevailed and, for those captured, the inhumanity of the treatment shown to the luckless POWs.The all-too-few memoirs that have emerged from this war have on the whole been written by officers. Captured At The Imjin River is therefore doubly important in that its author, Dave Green was a nineteen-year-old National Serviceman. His story is a remarkable one which he tells with both candour and humour. Not only did he fight in two major battles but he was captured at the Imjin River along with those of his fellow Glosters who were not killed. They then endured extraordinary hardships for over two years at the hands of his Chinese and North Korean captors before being released at the conclusion of hostilities.Dave's account of the bitter fighting and his years of captivity demand to be read. Captured At The Imjin River is a special book in many ways as it gives the reader a true insight into war and captivity from the perspective of the squaddie. His powers of observation and description are commendable and, while clearly very different, evoke those of George MacDonald Fraser's Quartered Safe Out Here, that classic fighting-man's description of the war in Burma.
