This is a memoir account of the author's journey from a seventeen-year-old school boy, to a combat soldier during the Korean War. Reflecting back to the summer of 1950, utilizing his notes, U. S. Army records, and his memory, he has drawn a picture in words of his movement from the easy-going classroom life of high school, to an infantry-armor trained combat soldier. He takes you into his family background, and the why of his enlistment, and carries the reader through basic, advanced training and cadre duties of a 1950's army life. An assignment to a combat infantry regiment in a very hostile environment, with an enemy and weather that causes heavy casualties, is described in blunt detail. The combat described is real, and from the point of view of the "grunt" soldier, and not from the high command. Paperback issue.
Available in PDF Format

    "Mid-Century Warrior: A Soldier's Journey to Korea" Mid-Century Warrior: A Soldier/s Journey to Korea [ No Rating ] 11 Apr 2006 by baream 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
