No Bugles, No Drums: An Oral History of the Korean War
"A vivid description of the Korean War as seen through the eyes of those who fought there. . . . Readers will find it easy to project themselves into the action, to be at the Pusan perimeter, on the ground at the Yalu River, at Pork Chop Hill, at Heartbreak Ridge or airborne in MiG Alley."--The Retired Officer Magazine "Those who survived the fighting and dying speak for themselves. . . . The gritty takes Tomedi compiled on a so-called 'forgotten' war pack a real wallop."--Kirkus Reviews "The oral testimonies here clearly convey what the war in Korea was like and how it differed from WWII and Vietnam." -- Publishers Weekly "No Bugles, No Drums will be a valuable addition to the military library of any student of history." -- Pointer View, U.S. Military Academy at West Point NO BUGLES, NO DRUMS In the foxholes and atop the fiery hilltops of Korea, men confronted the savage, all-too-human face of war. They were young, valiant, and largely forgotten by a public weary of waiting for victory. Sent halfway around the world, they were ordered to fight an enemy they didn't know, for political objectives they didn't understand. But they did their job and served their nation well. And now, forty years later, their story can be told.
