Best of The Korean War, on Midrats

Building off of Friday's FbF theme - if there can be only one Midrats this Sunday.

We ran this as a best of back in December, but with yesterday being the 60th anniversary of the Korean War armistice, there is no question this is the right episode.

Also, with the last year's announcement of the naming of DDG-116 after Medal of Honor recipient CAPT Thomas Hudner, USN (Ret) - it is an easy decision on today's show.

Today at 5pm Eastern will be our Navy Air Korean War episode with CAPT Hudner in the first half hour, and then author David Sears to discuss his book Men Such as These: The Story of the Navy Pilots Who Flew the Deadly Skys Over Korea.

Join us live if you can with the usual suspects in the chat room, even though it is a best-of, I'll bring it up for the regulars if you are so inclined. Also, if you miss the show you can always listen to the archive at blogtalkradio.

Mr. Sears is a very gifted writer who is able to teach history in an enticing and spellbinding way. I enjoy reading both fiction action and military history nonfiction novels. This book brings the non-fiction history of the Korean War and the Navy Aviators to the "movie screen of the mind" in and exciting way. I believe that any serious reader would enjoy this exciting book.
