Battle for the Punchbowl: The U. S. 1st Marine Division 1951 Fall Offensive of the Korean War

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
I would like to thank the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, which provided
some of the funding for this project, as well as the veterans whose memories provided
eye-witness accounts. Because of their service, I have the freedom to write this
manuscript. Also, thanks is extended to those who granted permission for me to use
material: The U. S. Naval Institute, The Korean War Educator Website, The Nautical
and Aviation Publishing Company, Charles Hughes, Harcourt Publishing, and to
Marines and soldiers who survived the Punchbowl, and passed on their reminiscences
to me: Ralph Steele and family, Bob Kleislely, Clyde Beaty, Don McKenna, and George
Ellis. I did not get to include all of the information they gave me, but it was all invaluable.
Also thanks go to any I neglected to mention here; there are so many l owe thanks to
that someone is bound to have been left out.
