This is an autobiographical tale filled with adventure—the story of John Bishop who left the logging camps of B.C. on 8 August 1950 to join the Canadian Army Special Force for service in Korea as a private soldier and, 36 years later retired from the Canadian Forces as a Lt.-Colonel.  The book is an intriguing account of the battles for the hills during the Korean War, culminating in the gallant stand at Kap’yong that earned the PPCLI a rare U.S. Presidential Unit Citation.
