4.0 out of 5 stars Personal comment from someone who was there, 26 Nov 2009
This review is from: To the Last Round: The Epic British Stand on the Imjin River, Korea 1951 (Hardcover)
A good read, my father as a nineteen year old national serviceman took part in this battle serving with 1RUR.

He served with, and knew Lt.Potts, who actually saved his patrol from an ambush during this battle.

He recently stated to me after reading the book that people should be reminded that the Royal Ulster Rifles never gave any ground during this battle.

Whilst the emphasis focuses on the Glosters, please remember the major part other units had in this infamous battle.

Respects to your father. The RUR fought their guts out at the battle of the Imjin River. I read an account some years ago about their role in the intense fighting. The sheer weight of numbers that the Chinese threw against them was highlighted by the fact that some of the RUR soldiers had carbine rifles, they began to overheat and jam due to carbon build up such was the rate of fire. The soldiers of RUR did the nation proud, just as the other units involved did. Hard as nails those boys were!

The RUR was my Granddads regiment. He was caught in the ambush trying to secure the bridge. He made it out in one piece. It was such an eye opener this book. He never really spoke of combat or korea. Just a shame he wasnt around to read it.
