The French Military In Korea - Heroism and Commitment
I just found GI Korea Blog...
I scrolled down a little and found this post on a battalion of French soldiers sent to the war.
Read it. These men fought with ferocity, and great courage, including against massed Chinese divisions. The battalion commander had been a 3 star general and about to retire, but took a demotion to LtCol in order to lead this unit in battle. At 59 years old, it sure sounds like he had the guts and stamina of many of our current youngsters in combat.
