On Desperate Ground

Thursday, February 13, 2020

Author Hampton Sides will discuss his book On Desperate Ground: The Marines at the Reservoir, the Korean War’s Greatest Battle. On Desperate Ground relies on years of archival research, unpublished letters, declassified documents, and interviews with scores of Marines and Koreans who survived the Chosin Reservoir. While expertly detailing the follies of the American leaders, On Desperate Ground is a grunt's-eye view of history, enthralling in its narrative pace and powerful in its portrayal of what ordinary men are capable of in the most extreme circumstances.
