|This book spans the 100-year period from 1850 up until the end of the Korean War. The author successfully transports you back into the history and customs of a tumultuous era. You are treated to a colorful picture gallery of fascinating and real life portraits of events and people. You become a participant in the battles of World War 1 at Messines Ridge and Chateau Thierrey, the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, the poverty and living conditions during the Great Depression, and the patriotism of a great and united nation during World War II. Mr Cutro presents the reader with a kaleidoscope of fascinating characters from gangsters, bank robbers, scoundrels, and picaresque children with whom he shared life on the Streets of New York. You are given a Ringside seat as you view one of the bloodiest battles in military history fought under unbelievable weather conditions and against overwhelming odds in the rugged frozen mountains of North Korea. *Author: Cutro, Ralph *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 188 *Publication Date: 2007/07/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.40 inches|
