Often called the "Forgotten War," the events which occurred in Korea from 1950 to 1953 will always be remembered by those confronted by the challenges of war when lives, democracy, and freedom are on the line. Danger Forward is a descriptive memoir of selected Korean wartime experiences written fifty years later. The then 1st Lieutenant Eugene Ritzo, a 30-year-old Ranger trained Infantry Platoon Leader, faced, along with his comrades, a tough, well-led and determined foe.

Outnumbered by the Communist Armies of North Korea and China, sometimes one hundred to one, United Nations forces employed superior combat skills, efficient logistics and overwhelming firepower on land, sea, and air to fight the invaders to a standstill, successfully ending the aggression and obtaining a truce that stands today. This conflict was possibly the last modern war that involved conventional wartime combat principles such as defined front lines and a readily identifiable enemy.

Bloody and hard fought battles with heavy casualties on both sides combined with extreme cold weather, steep mountainous terrain, destroyed bridges and bumpy dirt roads clogged with refugees made the "Forgotten War" unforgettable. Danger Forward gives tribute to the South Korean soldiers as well as providing first hand impressions of wartime Korean civilians and their culture.

Richly detailed, enlightening, and occasionally humorous, this account of the author’s service as a mine warfare and demolitions officer in the US Army during the Korean War ensures that this war is no longer "forgotten."
