On Thanksgiving Day, 1950, US Army troops pushed north through the Korean peninsula, to drive North Korea's Communist army out of democratically-held South Korea. Within days, they were surrounded by more than 85,000 Chinese soldiers in the mountains by the Chosin Reservoir. View the intense battle in intimate detail in this vivid narrative of combat and survival in the first major military clash of the Cold War.

Proud Daughter of one of the Chosin Few

By Marine Daughter and 82nd Airborne Mother

from New Orleans, Louisiana

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of Chosin DVD:

My Marine father rarely ever spoke about his experience but he was proud and grateful to have made it back from the Chosin Reservoir. Many, many years later when my son was headed to Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne Division my father pulled out a piece of yellow material. My father then told us the story behind the yellow "scarf". It came from a parachute that was used to drop supplies to the troops. My father used part of the parachute to wrap around himself to battle to extreme cold and also cut a long piece to wrap around his neck. This is what he brought home with him and what he wanted my son to have with him in Afghanistan. I too am ordering multiple copies. My father passed away a little over a year ago - I so wish he could have seen this tribute.

Every young person should see this heartbreaking film

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of Chosin DVD:

I was an Officer in the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam. I served with other officers and non-commissioned officers who had served in Korea. Chosin Reservoir was more history to me than real. This film brought home to me what these Marines and soldiers endured. I had the honor of knowing a Marine Officer who won the Silver Star during that battle. I wish I had seen this film when I was attending Basic School in Quantico in 1964. I think it would have made me realize what a real honor it is to lead Marines. I also discovered I have great empathy for the Chinese soldiers who fought in that battle and suffered like our Marines and soldiers did. I was proud of my brother Marines for the kind treatment they gave to the Chinese prisoners. That is what Marines do. Semper Fidelis!

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of Chosin DVD:

This DVD presenting the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir and the heroic exploits of the First Marine Division effectively conveys significant insight into the multi faceted aspects of the military, political, and social issues surrounding the Korean War. This documentary is required viewing for those interested in geo-political issues.

The Chosen Few - True American Heroes

By Mark

from Otsego, MN

Comments about PBS American Experience: The Battle of Chosin DVD:

This is an excellent documentary! My father served in the First Marines and was a surviving member of the Chosin Reservoir. What he and those other men went through was totally unbelievable.

I am going to buy several of the DVD's and pass them on to his grandchildren so they can learn about the costly sacrifices that were made for all of us.

My father and others like him are true American Heroes in my book. I for one, will never let this become a "forgotten war"!
