Triumph at Kapyong
Dan Bjarnason


Afghanistan is not Canada's first war in Asia. We've been there before, over a half century ago, in Korea. And it was a meat grinder, scarcely remembered now, a war in which on one hilltop, on one April night, freshly minted Canadian soldiers, men of the 2nd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry made a desperate stand that prevented catastrophe.

The Kapyong story sparkles with qualities that Canadians believe make up their national character: sacrifice, courage, initiative, modesty and an uncomplicated rock-solid belief in themselves.
