The Korean War is often referred to as the “forgotten war.” Here, professor James N. Butcher relives his experiences as an infantryman with Fox Company of the 17th Infantry Regiment, during the final year of the Korean War (1952-1953). In a graphic portrayal of living conditions on the front, Butcher describes combat actions that occurred in two major battles of this period—the Battle for Jane Russell Hill (a part of Triangle Ridge) and the first Battle of Pork Chop Hill—and makes a strong case for why we as Americans need to remember what happened there and why.
James Butcher was born in Bergoo, West Virginia in 1933. At age 17 he joined the Army and served during the Korean War, fighting in the first battle of Pork Chop Hill. After military service he went on to earn a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and served as a professor and later Director of the clinical psychology program at the University of Minnesota. He is currently Professor Emeritus there and has published 58 books and more than 250 articles in the field.
