Daniel Wolfe was a Bronx, New York, teenager, whose passions were baseball, fooling around in school, and hanging out at the candy store in the 1940s. Three years out of high school, he was drafted and sent to Korea. Cold Ground's been My Bed is his no-holds-barred memoir of the experience. From physical exam to deployment into a frontline platoon, Dan tells the story with unflinching honesty and humor amid tragic events. Dan, five-foot-seven and 133 pounds, felt inadequate handling the Browning Automatic Rifle in basic training. A cadre man told him not to worry: ?It's given to the biggest men in the squad.' The day Dan arrived on the front line; he was assigned the twenty-pound BAR. When his platoon was ambushed, Dan crawled over fire-swept terrain to retrieve the body of his sergeant. He was cited for the Silver Star, but the Jeep carrying the papers was blown up by mortar rounds. Dan relates how a GI was killed by negligent ?friendly fire? and his buddy carried out a revenge murder. Throughout the memoir, Dan never pretends to be more than he was, a young man being shocked and shaped by the reality of war.Wolfe, Daniel is the author of 'Cold Ground's Been My Bed A Korean War Memoir', published 2005 under ISBN 9780595341351 and ISBN 0595341357.
