    "Mid-Century Warrior: A Soldier's Journey to Korea" About as close to time travel that you'll ever get ......, May 21, 2006 Reviewer: Rudolf Spoerer "dowadiddi" (Weston, FL United States) - See all my reviews What a wondefull book, although not the normal fare of my usual reading I certainly enjoyed the most clear and uncluttered way that the author takes us back in time to his youth as a soldier in the Korean war. What we are talking about here is a soldier, a real soldier that is, at a time when a soldier did his duty without question, anxieties or conflicts. The Korean war, ridiculously called a police action may perhaps be a harbinger of our current events where on the heels of a major war with Germany even the most stalwart of a politician in the 1950's did not have to guts to clean out North Korea and finish the problem once and foreall .... See how easy the reader may fall into the trap of being judgemental drawing critical parallels that the author... More > marvelously manages to avoid. Written in a diary style this biography carries the reader along a vicarious journey back to simpler times where there was still some unquestioned purity in true patriotism... For the reader that has often longed for their own fathers to write about his 'life' story this certainly makes up for all those dogs of war that 'never got down to it' .... Wonderfull I really enjoyed it ......< Less

    "Mid-Century Warrior A Soldier's Journey To Korea " I was a young girl when this man was in Korea. I remember praying as a child and thanking God that I was a girl so that I didn't have to go into the service. I had never read a book like this until now; and now that I have, I realize why I said those prayers. God bless all the brave soldiers of our Country for their courage and sacrifices.

    "Mid-Century Warrior A Soldier's Journey To Korea" I was surprised to see that it paralleled my stay in Korea in 1951-1952. Although I was there a little earlier, the areas that he mentioned were recognizable to me, especially the many battle sites. I am surprised he didn't mention Chet Bair, who was a member of Tank Company, Service Company, which was at an area where General Faranbaugh was almost killed and had to be rescued by a Lt. who received the Bronze Star for his bravery. Another portion of the book concerning the Heart Break Ridge area where individuals went through an area that was supposed to be secured by B Company, the author mentions how a patrol just walked through this supposedly secure area only to result in the court martial of several individuals commanded by Cpt. Busby. I would give this book 2 stars and recommend it for reading by Korean War Vets and will recommend it to the members of the 32nd Infantry Regiment Association.

    "Mid-Century Warrior: A Soldier/s Journey to Korea" I have just finished Mid-Century Warrior: A Soldier's Journey to Korea. I am not much of a reader, but this book really held my interest. Never being in the service, this book re We all have memories of the good and the bad. I hope it is mostly good for gave me an insight on boot camp, war, friendships, tragedies, healings, military life. I remember some things about the Korean war, but I never realized how many solders were killed or wounded in action. What is interesting is that no peace treaty has ever been signed!! Entering the service at 17, you were really driven to join. I love history and especially history about war. I have written papers on Tarawa, and the battle in Sicily during WWll. Again, this was a great book and thank you for making it happen, Ron Eamma
