On Desperate Ground
From Hampton Sides, bestselling author of Ghost Soldiers and Blood and Thunder, On Desperate Ground renders a heart-pounding account from the Korean War. Drawing on meticulous research, Sides masterfully captures the courage, ingenuity, fortitude, and ferocity of the United States First Marine Division in one of the most harrowing battles in our country's military history, the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir. As noted by the Miami Herald, "Sides has a novelist's eye for the propulsive elements that lend momentum and dramatic pace to the best nonfiction narratives."
