A Korean ridge known as the Hook was the scene of three epic battles in late 1952 and early 1953. Each battle involved a different distinguished regiment: the 7th U.S. Marines and Britain's Black Watch and Duke of Wellington's Regiment. With the 50th anniversary of the Korean War under way, a new generation of readers will be fascinated and moved by these desperate battles against heavy odds.
