Prairie Boys at War by M.M Helm
THE PRAIRIE BOYS AT WAR SERIES Prairie Boys at War: Korea is a unique, riveting, fast-paced account of men from the northern prairies who received the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross and/or Navy Cross for heroism in the Korean War. Through their experiences, as well as those of other combat veterans, the history of the war is told in graphic detail.These were depression-era farm boys, miners, sharpshooters, paperboys and athletes. Two were young physicians who thought they were spending a pleasant 90-day rotation in Japan before landing on the front lines of Korea instead. There's no other book like it.Volume 1: June October 1950 covers the deadly delaying actions of the war's first four months. Future volumes will cover the terrible winter and spring of 1950-51 during which hundreds of thousands of Chinese soldiers abruptly came to the aid of North Korea. The final volume of the series will cover the vicious but little known "outpost wars" of 1952-53.
