New book, 216 pages. Though it remains the bloodiest battle fought by British troops since World War II, a full account of Imjin River has never appeared. This book fills that gap. In April 1951, the greatest offensive of the Korean War was unleashed. For three nights, hand-to-hand combat raged as Britain's 29th Infantry Brigade battled China's 'Human Wave'. Outnumbered 7-1, the brigade desperately fought free, but for one battalion it was too late. In a last stand on a burning hilltop, the 'Glorious Glosters' were wiped out.
