This poignant and nostalgic book highlights the Korean War-era service and sacrifice of the people of Rutherford County, North Carolina. Many Rutherford County residents contributed to the war effort both overseas and on the home front; this book ensures that posterity will remember their legacy and extraordinary efforts. Featuring over two hundred vintage photographs from the era, Rutherford County in the Korean War provides a glimpse into the lives of an outstanding group of Americans who bravely gave of themselves during a trying time in our country's history. When the United States called upon its citizens to mobilize against a common enemy, the men and women of Rutherford County truly rose to meet the challenge. From the details of daily life at home and in foreign lands to dramatic accounts of fighting at the front, this book offers an intimate and revealing portrait of the strength of a community and the character of its people. Anita Price Davis and James M. Walker create a fascinating window into the history of an American county and its people and set the county's contribution to the Korean War effort in the context of local, national and international affairs.
