The Korean War is often referred to as the "forgotten war." In his book, professor James N. Butcher relives his experiences as an infantryman with Fox Company of the 17th Infantry Regiment, during the final year of the Korean War (1952-1953). In a graphic portrayal of living conditions on the front, Butcher describes combat actions that occurred in two major battles of this period--the Battle for Jane Russell Hill (a part of Triangle Ridge) and the first Battle of Pork Chop Hill--and makes a strong case for why we as Americans need to remember what happened there and why.
