July 1953. The Korean War had become a bloody stalemate. Peace was imminent but-as bitter fighting continued-each soldier could only ask himself, would he be the last to die? Despite this, a small group of the U.S. 7th Infantry Division fought back the Chinese Army on Pork Chop Hill. In round-the-clock counterattacks, devastating artillery assaults, and vicious hand-to-hand fighting, the Korean War's final, hellish chapter played out-while truce negotiations dragged on.
On Hallowed Ground uses previously classified documents and never-before-told accounts by the soldiers and medics whose extraordinary heroism held the Chop to reveal, for the first time, the full story of the greatest test of U.S. soldiers' resolve since Valley Forge.
