"The King's Bishop recounts a segment of the Korean War from the point of view of one who did the actual fighting. John Bishop's personal recollection of the unique way Canada raised the Special Force for Korea, from recruiting centre to training ground, from the perils of transport on a soon-to-be-decommissioned American troopship to arrival in Korea, and yet more training before commital to battle, provides an intriguing chronicle of war from the soldier's perspective. It is most compelling in its account of the day to day life of an infantry platoon on the move or in the line."
(From the foreward)
