will bet it is inaccuracies by the authors.
50 years later you could not sell the truth so the writers make
up their own stories, get an ex GI to swear He was there and He has a book to
sell. The ex-GI was not even close so I understand, He was not in a combat
unit close to the place. It is amazing how much people can remember 50 years
later with just a little prompting even with no knowledge of the facts.
I think it is called money or notoriety.
I think David Blight's book on war and memory can be applied
to the Korean War as well.
