Product description


'Over a thousand British servicemen lost their lives in the Korean War and here, at last, is a compelling account of a defining moment in the conflict.... An astonishing tale.'
--Good Book Guide, June, 2009<br /><br />`Salmon's vivid use of recollections and dramatic quotes brings alive an unjustly forgotten conflict'
-- Time Out, August 20, 2009<br /><br />'To the Last Round by Andrew Salmon is a gripping hour-by-hour reconstruction of the defence of the Imjin River in Korea by a brigade of British troops in April 1951. It's still the bloodiest battle fought by British troops since the Second World War and should rank with Rorke's Drift as an heroic last stand. Yet it and the Korean War in general are little known and the few surviving veterans are bitter at this lack of recognition. Salmon's superb book, exhaustively researched and expertly written, should go some way to redressing the balance.'
-- Saul David, The Times, October 11, 2009<br /><br />'Enthralling and action-packed...relives every moment of that astonishing battle' -- Robert Hardman, Daily Mail, April 24, 2009<br /><br />'Copiously reported...the book is filled with detail enough to win the attention even of those for whom military histories may seem irrelevent...exciting stuff' -- Don Kirk, Far Eastern Economic Review, October 2, 2009<br /><br />'A superb book which showcases British courage during a now almost forgotten last stand' -- Soldier Magazine, 2009<br /><br />'So glad you have recorded this piece of history and the people who made it for posterity' -- General Sir Peter de la Billiere<br /><br />'The descriptions of the battles are so realistic they raise the adrenalin level...your book should carry a health warning: Anyone with Post Traumatic Stress would be in danger of a relapse'
--Brigadier Meryn McCord, Imjin Veteran
