The Frozen Chosen is an account of the breakout from the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea by the First Marine Division following the intervention of Red China in the Korean War. Fought during the worst blizzard in a century it is considered by the United States Marine Corps to be 'the Corps' Finest Hour.' Based on first-person interviews from surviving veterans, who came to be known as the Frozen Chosen, this is an incredible story of heroism and bravery in the face of overwhelming odds as a handful of Marines fought desperately against wave after wave of Chinese forces. Sometimes forced into desperate hand to hand combat, the fighting retreat from Chosin marked one of the darkest moments for Western forces in Korea, but would go on to resonate with generations of Marines as a symbol of the Marine Corps dogged determination, fighting skill and never-say-die attitude on the battlefield.

MEDIA REVIEWS

". . . an excellent account of one of the most epic moments in American history . . . This is a valuable addition to the literature of the war in Korea, and a worthwhile read for anyone interested in men at war." - Strategy Page

"Acclaimed author Thomas McKelvey Cleaver presents an excellent history as he describes the high-level political and military ignorance that ordered the Marine Corps and Army units to move "forward into the greatest military ambush ever planned." - Military Officer
