Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Sixty years after 4,000 Marines were slaughtered during a fierce battle against Chinese forces in North Korea, the American soldiers who helped to save 98,000 North Korean refugees speak out about their incredible harrowing experiences in the so-called "forgotten war." At the time of the battle, most of the American soldiers in North Korea were only teenagers with no concept of war and inhumanity. The lessons they learned on those snowy mountains, while building parapets out of the bodies of fallen friends and battling Chinese soldiers hand to hand after their weapons failed from the cold, would remain with them for life, even if they were far too painful to talk about. But now, decades later, the members of the 1st Marine Division will tell their stories -- tales of remarkable courage in the face of overwhelming odds, and unwavering allegiance to the American flag and everything it stood for.
