5.0 out of 5 stars a VERY GOOD BOOK
Lent to me by an old veteran of the Korean war, I was surprised how interesting the book was. A first hand account of the defence of 'The Hook' by the Duke of Wellington's brigade, of which Eddie was a young enlisted soldier.

AS a Vet (Shining Seventh) serving at the time this book is about, I would love to know what these people who wrote glowing reports about this book are taking. It is an entertaining book in reality not factual, but perhaps we lived in a parallel existence. I could list a list of faults but I have not the time or inclination. I would add that I am not saying that the Dukes did not go through it but it takes away from them with the errors in the book
Try TO THE LAST ROUND if you wish to know about the Korean war

5.0 out of 5 stars Fortune Favours the Brave, 26 Jan. 2009

This review is from: Fortune Favours the Brave: The Commonwealth Brigade in the Korea War (Hardcover)
I purchased this book because of family involvement and to carry out research, my late father was a sergeant major with the Duke of Wellington's Regiment in Korea. It gives a brief insight on the Korean conflict.

Books like this are all the more important when regiments are amalgamating and some are loosing their identity. The Dukes are now known as the 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment.
