An authentic and action-packed account of the disastrous retreat from the Manchurian border and the horrific battle that followed on the River Imjin, this is also the story of a regiment plagued by internal conflict, culminating in an officer being charged with rape. His court-martial is among the most remarkable ever portrayed, and the gripping and intriguing ending has an ironic twist that will never be forgotten.
