About this product
- DescriptionIt was 1937 when Joseph Dohue first met Frank Milisits in grammar school. As they grew up together on the Upper East Side of New York City, the two boys kept scrapbooks on World War II, became junior aid-raid wardens, and attended block parties for returning veterans. But little did Joseph and Frank kw that their fascination with war would eventually lead them one day to fight in a hostile climate thousands of miles away. In his Korean War memoir, Joseph Dohue chronicles the captivating story of how two naive twenty-year-old kids made a full-circle journey from draftees to basic training recruits to airborne troopers who somehow summoned the courage to jump out of the first planet they ever set foot in. As the young men arrived in Korea during a time of uncertainty and chaos, Dohue details how the two men quickly moved from days of complete boredom to hair-raising moments as the crawled in the rat-infested trenches, dodged booby traps and minefields, and risked their lives to keep hordes of enemy soldiers at bay. One year later, they returned home as combat veterans who has somehow survived terrifying battles and a one-in-nine chance of becoming a war casualty. Frank and Me at Mundung-ni provided an eye-opening glimpse into the realities of The Forgotten War and the compelling personal memories of two childhood pals who shared an impassioned journey to a war neither would ever forget.
