About this title
General Walton H. Walker died in December 1950 while commanding the Eighth Army in Korea. A combat veteran of three wars, Walker, like his role model, General George S. Patton, Jr., died not from an enemy bullet, but as the result of a vehicular accident.
From his earliest years growing up in the rolling hills of central Texas, Walton Walker had set his sights on an army career. Graduating from the U.S. Military Academy in 1912, Walker served in Vera Cruz, Mexico, in 1914; commanded a machine gun battalion in France in 1918; led XX Corps in the vanguard of Patton’s Third Army through France, Germany, and Austria in World War II; and commanded the understrength, ill-equipped, and outmanned Eighth Army during the darkest days of the Korean War.From the Publisher:
The Biography of a remarkable soldier. Walker led XX Corps in the vanguard of Patton’s Third Army through France, Germany, and Austria in World War II.
