A PERSONAL NOTE FROM JEFF
First, thank you to those who went to the trouble to provide me with contact information for Gail Shisler, the author of the bio of General Oliver P. Smith, who was the commanding general of the 1st Marine Division during the Chosin Reservoir campaig in Korea. I will follow up with a letter to her (the general's granddaughter).
I have to admit that some of the memoirs and diaries I've gone through, plus the live interviews I've been fortunate to conduct with living veterans, all have given me a new appreciation for just what the Marines and soldiers experienced in late 1950. This story is narrowing in focus to include the Inchon and Chosin Reservoir campaigns, and though this story has been told before (by Hollywood, certainly), I'm hoping you will find many points of view to be somewhat different than you might have seen before, including that of a Chinese soldier, and his commanding officer! Those perspectives might be a surprise to some readers (I hope so). But it is certainly a part of this story that is rarely explored.
As always, I apologize for not responding to every email I receive – But I assure you, I do READ all of them, and will answer them as time allows. And, for all you cynics out there (and there are a few), yes, it's really me who answers you. Honest- I really don't have a staff. Please note that some of your questions might be answered on the FAQ Page (Frequently Asked Questions).
