In December 1948, James Campbell, 15, joined the U.S. Army. On June 25, 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea. Campbell, stationed in Japan, was among the first U.S. soldiers to join the conflict. This book is a collection of stories about a young soldier’s experience in the war. His accounts run the gamut of emotions—anger, heartbreak, apprehension, comradery, even humor. Campbell lets you see and feel the horrors of war through the eyes of a boy becoming a man.
