The Frozen Hours by Jeff Shaara (ARC from Netgalley)

The Frozen Hours: A Novel of the Korean War

Rating:4/5

Summary: (x)

My Thoughts:

First off thank you to netgalley for the ARC because I was really looking forward to reading this book. I loved this book because it got me interested in reading more about the Korean War which is largely forgotten in military history. This book was well researched and written. The author is one of my go to authors for military fiction.

Plot:

The story follows three men through the first part of the Korean War. It tells of their struggles and what the war is like for them. We get a unique perspective on the war from both sides of the armies. It is brutal in the descriptions of the conditions the men struggle with. It follows them through intense fighting and the harsh realities of war.

Characters:

The story focuses on three men, two Americans and one Korean. The chapters alternate between their points of view telling their side of the war and how they react to their situations. The three points make the story so much more interesting and real.
