Review: Breakout: The Chosin Reservoir Campaign, Korea 1950

User Review  - Patricia - Goodreads

Very interesting personal accounts but the writing was totally written for people who have a background in the military. Many points in the book I was so confused as to what the author was writing about. Overall, a good account of the Marines' "attack from a different direction." Read full review

Russ takes the stories of the marines and soldiers that survived the battle for the Chosin Reservoir and paints them into a narrative that is both inspirational and horrifying. The book was gripping from cover to cover. Read full review
