Abstract:

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Korean War, "Dog Company Six" has been written by a retired brigadier general who brings all his military experience to this timely look into the past to the days when the Cold War first turned hot. A Marine who wielded both pen & sword in a long & distinguished career captures the heroism & the horror of the early days of the Korean War in this gripping novel. As a young man-with his own experiences in the war still vivid in his mind-Ed Simmons put on paper the complex gamut of emotions & experiences that made this bloody encounter between East & West so unique. For personal reasons, he kept these pages to himself until now. To commemorate the war's anniversary, now-retired General Simmons has resurrected the novel to offer a timely look into the past to the days when the Cold War first turned hot. Reminiscent of the same intensity & realism that James Webb brought to the pages of Fields of Fire & the introspective depth that typified James Jones's From Here to Eternity, the pages of this novel gradually immerse the reader in the reality of another American conflict, illuminating both the idiosyncrasies of this so-called "police action" & its similitude to all wars. Through a revealing series of events & flashbacks, reserve-Captain George Bayard answers the call to arms, journeying from a private school in Baltimore to lead his Dog Company Marines in a series of battles from the mud flats of Inchon to the frozen wasteland of the Chosin reservoir. Along the way, he learns the difficult lessons of combat leadership & finds the true meaning behind the words of the Marine Corps' motto, Semper Fidelis.
