Hell in the Land of the Morning Calm

I mentioned this book in a recent post, but thought it deserved its own. If you want to read a great book and a real-life story of someone who fought in the Korean war definitely get a book called “Hell in the Land of the Morning Calm” written by a man named Dallas Plemmons. I happened upon his testimony on television a long time ago and was enthralled. Once I started reading the book I couldn’t put it down, and finished it in one sitting. There are not many books that I can say are my favorites, but this is one of them.

It’s amazing he made it out alive. I have an older version (see below), but there are newer used versions available on Amazon.com. After you read his story, you will definitely understand why people say “war is hell”.
