Item Description

“Ice Men” chronicles the pivotal first year of the Korean War, leading up to the clash of three U.S. Army battalions and a Marine division against a far larger Chinese force surrounding them at the Chosin Reservoir. Staying true to history, the novel brings the war to life through three characters: Marine Sergeant Harlan Hood is glad to be in another fight five years after storming the beach at Iwo Jima.  His son isn’t so happy. An amiable playboy, Sam waited until World War II was over to put on an Army uniform, confident that America’s next war must be decades away.  Lieutenant Bonnie Brisbane, a dedicated young nurse who grew up without a father, serves in a MASH unit facing a hard choice: obey Army regulations or try a risky new surgery to save men torn in battle.  The veteran sergeant and his green lieutenant son, their family torn apart by divorce, find themselves bound back together by the demands of combat––and by a woman who went to war not just to save men but to study them.
