What is Kobo Super Points?
Marines and Sailors fight for their shipmates on their flanks, and this outnumbered Marine company played a crucial role in the success of the breakout. George Company faced impossible odds in each of the battles it participated in starting with the Inchon landing. The men faced complex enemy situations including ambushes, roadblocks, snipers, and tanks during their missions.
Crafting a lucid narrative from all this was no easy task and O'Donnell's greatest strength is his ability to do just that. Give Me Tomorrow would benefit from the addition of more official sources such as Battalion logs or after-action reports, but nevertheless, the book is a testament to the resolve and bravery of the young men who faced immense hardship and personal loss in the harshest of places. It was an honor to meet these heroes in person and witness the powerful bonds forged between them in battle.
