Known as the Forgotten War, the "police action" in Korea resulted in almost as many American combat deaths in three years as the Vietnam War did in ten. Yet for many Americans today, the Korean War brings to mind nothing more than the television series "M*A*S*H".William Dannenmaier served in Korea with the U.S. Army from December 1952 to January 1954, first as a radioman and then as a radio scout with the Fifteenth Infantry Regiment. From his vantage point as an Everyman, Dannenmaier describes the frustration of men on the front lines who never saw their commanding superiors, the exhaustion of soldiers whose long-promised leaves never materialized, the transitory friendships and shared horrors that left indelible memories. This intimate, revealing memoir, a rare account by a common soldier, is a tribute to the Americans who served in a conflict that has only recently begun to gain a place in official public memory.
"Offers a well-written account of the experiences of GI Joe... It does for the Korean conflict what Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front did for WW I - it reveals the profound effect war has on the lives of the combatants." - Choice "Oddly affecting, combining as it does the aimless routine in military service (even in wartime) with the punctual moments of sheer terror that make the modern war memoir simultaneously so gripping and so confusing." - Virginia Quarterly Review "Provides a fine soldier's view of war, perceiving its often cruel and stupid process but also seeing times when his fellow soldiers and sometimes even the enemy could escape the dehumanizing callousness of war in redemptive behavior." - Robert W. Lewis, North Dakota Quarterly "Dannenmaier has a gift for layering incident upon incident, detail upon detail so that readers gradually build up a richly textured picture of an infantryman's life in Korea... I was a journalist covering veterans affairs for more than six years and in that time I heard a lot of war stories and read many more. This is one of the very best." - Mark Allen Peterson, Stars and Stripes Quoted from interview on Military.com "What would you like readers to come away with from the book?" "I'd like this to be an anti-war book. We've got to stop this nonsense. There have got to be better ways to solve problems than to send a bunch of young men off to kill each other." ADVANCE PRAISE "A little classic. Its real strength is that it brings back this 'police action' so vividly."- David C. Smith, coeditor of American Women in a World at War: Contemporary Accounts from World War II "Based largely on letters that Dannenmaier wrote to family members during the conflict, this memoir skillfully weaves primary documents with the author's later analysis to make an account that is often captivating in its immediacy and thought-provoking in its reflectiveness. Transparently honest, occasionally touching, and frequently humorous, We Were Innocents is war literature of a high order."- Malcolm Muir Jr., Austin Peay State University
