Valleys of Death

by Bill Richardson

Colonel Bill Richardson, caught in the Chinese assault at Unsan—one of the worst American fights of the Cold War era—led an Alamo-like defence of the few survivors before being captured. The North Koreans marched them to Death Valley in sub-zero temperatures, with no food, shelter, or medical assistance. Richardson stayed strong enough to lead his fellow inmates in resistance, sabotage, and fresh escape attempts while being subjected to torture aimed to damage the mind and body.

Valleys of Death is a riveting narrative of survival and tenacity, an intimate look at the men who fought America's first cold-war combat through the eyes of one of their own.
