    Dan, awesome book. Good work. I also lament at the lack of tribute accorded this great battle. I have watched We Were Soldiers with Mel Gibson and I swear it is rip from this Canadian battle . . .
    I was in Kapyong last year, then at the Korean War Memorial museum and met a fellow named Henry Martinak, who was involved in the battle of Kapyong. I told him I had been writing a treatment fro a film script. Is anybody really serious about this battle as a movie? It needs to be put on the map. I have spent some time focusing on the locals in my story because it is true that young Koreans really don’t know are even care much about this war, even though the guys spend a couple years in military service. So, unless the local population is involved there would not be a Korean audience for the film. And that would be a pity. Excellent!
