Book Hour: A Christmas Far from Home – An Epic Tale of Courage and Survival During the Korean War


General Douglas MacArthur said our troops would be home for Christmas in 1950 during the Korean War. His ego and his staff’s acquiescence to his hubris deceived the American media and people. The truth on the ground was a far cry from MacArthur’s assertions. Read the horrific conditions our troops had to endure due to America’s inept military command structure. In fact, if the Chinese had been able to adequately supply their troops, America would have suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of world warfare. Listen to the author talk about a frightening episode in U.S. history then buy they book.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
