Summary: When USMC Captain Thomas Verity is called back to action, he must leave his Georgetown home, career, and young daughter and rush to Korea to monitor Chinese radio transmissions. At first acting in an advisory role, he is abruptly thrust into MacArthur's last daring and disastrous foray - the Chosin Reservoir campaign - and then its desperate retreat.

This is a stunning, shattering novel of war illuminated only by courage, determination, Marine Corps discipl
ine, and by love: of soldier for soldier, of men and their women, and of a small girl in Georgetown, whose father promised she would dance with him on the bridges of Paris - a child Captain Verity fears he may never see again.

In The Marines of Autumn, James Brady captures our imagination and shocks us into a new understanding of war.

Author Biography: JAMES BRADY was a baby-faced marine in charge of a combat platoon during Korean War. He captured these experiences in his highly praised memoir The Coldest War. His weekly columns for Advertising Age and Parade magazines are considered must-reads by millions. He lives in Manhattan and in East Hampton, New York.
