The Savior: General Oliver Prince Smith (PB)
A Novel of the Korean War
In late July of 1950, Major General Oliver Prince Smith took command of the 1st Marine Division and in September led them ashore at Inchon and recaptured Seoul. The Korean War should have been about over. The Chinese warned the Americans that if they crossed the 38th parallel they would come into the war. But General Douglas MacArthur ignored the warning and ordered the 1st Marine Division to go north to the Yalu River. On November 27, 80,000 Chinese soldiers attacked and surrounded 15,000 Marines at a place called Chosin Reservoir.
The Savior is the graphic historical novel of how the quiet, reserved Major General risked his own career to save his men, leading them in a brutal 78-mile fight to the sea in sub-zero conditions. It's the fascinating, gripping saga of the most famous and successful breakout in American military history.
