ON HALLOWED GROUND:
The Last Battle for Pork Chop Hill |
by Bill McWilliams, Foreword by Gen. Robert W. Sennewald, USA (Ret.).
Publisher: Naval Institute
Publish Date: 2004
Edition: First Edition
Description: 520 Pages - 11 Illustrations.Evoking all the powerful emotions of a frustrating, bitter, bloody, stalemated Korean War, Bill McWilliams takes readers into the trenches and bunkers of Pork Chop Hill with the men of the 7th Infantry Divisionís 17th and 32nd Regiments as they withstand repeated assaults by the Chinese in July 1953. Their individual accounts of small victories and defeats, fear and valor bring alive the final battle for the hill. While a popular movie starring Gregory Peck made Pork Chop Hill a public legend, only one other book has been written about the subject and it focuses on earlier assaults. This book includes the never-before-told stories of the riflemen, machine gunners, forward observers, sergeants, platoon leaders, and medics whose heroic efforts helped hold the hill and produced two Medals of Honor and ten Distinguished Service Crosses, some awarded posthumously.
