Books: The Marines Of Autumn

By James Brady

Before he made his name as a high-profile journalist, Brady was a line Marine lieutenant who had to keep his head down and his feet warm. He is now waging war on two fronts. His new novel, based on his Korean War experience, hits the racks at the same time as a reissue of his 1990 combat memoir, The Coldest War. Nearly 37,000 American troops died in Korea, where the winters were as deadly as the enemy. Both novel and memoir are graphic reminders of what has been called the Forgotten War. But not by Brady.
