Share Article

Nonfiction memoir, Korean War, ground combat, 1951-1952, with an infantry-armor combat team at Heartbreak Ridge and the Punchbowl battles.

A nonfiction memoir providing the reader a close-up look at ground combat in Korea, 1951-1952. The Korean War was deadly, the enemy fought ferociously, with no quarter given by either side. This is a personal account of a 1950’s American soldier with the basics, barracks and bullets described in all the warts and glory of the era. The ending is bitter-sweet as the soldier leaves the service and reenters civilian life.


Warren Gardner MacDonald was born in Medford, Massachusetts in 1933. His family was of modest means and they worked hard to provide the basics of food, clothing and shelter during the depression years.

In 1950, Warren enlisted in the U. S. Army, serving for three years. While in Korea, he was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, two Purple Hearts, the Korean Campaign Medal with two Bronze Stars, and other earned ribbons and medals. He spent eighteen months in Army Hospitals recovering from wounds received in combat.

He is a graduate of Boston University, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, and Long Island University, NY, with a Masters in Business Administration degree.

Married, with four children, he is retired and resides with his wife, Dorothy Ellen, in Jupiter, Florida.
