UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL How quickly we forget our heroes... those who daily risk their lives for our freedom. It is difficult to imagine the anguish, the determination and yes even the fear, in the heart of a man driven by enemy fire into a fox hole. How do you capture in words the feelings and thoughts of soldiers under attack by the enemy? William A. Cummins met that challenge with this remarkable book, "THE FORGOTTEN" as he unveils a series of stories by Korean War Veterans depicting their combat experiences in their very own words. Battlefield experiences from a war that must never be forgotten. You will follow a 19 year old PFC Marine from his sharecropping youth in Ohio to a brutal battlefield ambush in Korea and finally to a pulpit in Florida. Dozens of stories and photographs of our unsung heroes provide a written witness to the nearly three million people who perished during that horrific war. Each veteran expresses a small fragment of himself during the war for his children and grandchildren to read in a book.
