Synopsis

Coming of age in the early 1950s meant, for a generation of young Texans, following the leadership of their World War II mentors into the terrible face of war. Their innocence was shattered on the ugly terrain of pain anddisillusionment that was Korea. They became battle hardened and worldly wise as only men who have marched to hell and back can be. A half-century has passed since that conflict. The Forgotten War: Texas Veterans Remember Korea applauds the sacrifices of the fighting men without questioning the politics or attempting to sway historys perspective of that period. Here, survivors tell their stories in the informal settings of veteran bull sessions. In all the interviews and hours of conversation contained in this book, no one laments the lack of awareness of the war on the home front. Most remember their personal loneliness and fear of being forgotten. Survivors guilt caused more difficulty in later adjustment than resentment over lack of recognition. If the Greatest Generation blazed this bunchs trail, the ones who followed certainly did their parents proud.
