Publisher Description

Joe Owen tells it like it was in this evocative story of a marine rifle company in the uncertain, early days of the Korean War. His powerful description of close combat in the snow-covered mountains of the Chosin Reservoir and of the survival spirit of his Marines provide a gritty real-life view of frontline warfare.

As a lieutenant who was with them from first muster in California, Owen was in a unique position to see the hastily assembled mix of some 200 regulars and raw reservists harden into a superb Marine rifle company. The action and narrative move fast as the company learns to fight under enemy fire, eat frozen rations, and keep pushing forward when its wounded and dead go down.

A real eye opener...

What an excellent book! I've read this book four times and listening to it is even better. My grandfather never talked about his time in Korea or in the Marines at all and thanks to Joe Owen's book I now know all about what kind of Marine my grandfather (Capt. Wilcox) was. Semper Fi!

The forgotten war

Americans tend to forget the war in Korea even though is was one of the most brutal battles in US history. This is a record of some of those unsung heroes who fought and died at Chosin Reservoir under some of the most gruelling weather conditions. Great narration of battle scenes and suffering cold.

Colder Than Hell: A Marine Rifle Company at Chosin Reservoir

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and I would (and have) recomend it to anyone wanting to get a idea of what the guys went through at the Chosin Reservoir. Purchase with confidence. I would say similar things about this book that I did for "The Last Stand of Fox Company."
