Abstract:

When Henry Childs is threatened by his first love's father, he enlists in the Marines to escape.

Mercy's father disapproves of their love, so she and Henry flee to New Orleans to play out their passionate affair. When her father hunts them down and takes his daughter home, Henry enlists in the Marines and is thrown into a decisive moment of the Korean War-- the brutal battle of the Chosin Reservoir. Returning home scarred and haunted, he will meet far greater challenges.
