Hampton Sides at the Veteran's Hall
On Sunday, November 17th at 2:00pm join Towne Center Books and the Pleasanton Veteran's Hall for an afternoon conversation with author Hampton Sides.
Hampton Sides is the author of several thrilling and gripping non-fiction books such as Ghost Soldiers, Blood and Thunder, and Hellhound on His Trail. Undoubtedly one of the best historical writers in our modern day, Sides' writing has been described as the most gripping telling of non-fiction events possible. His exciting writing carries on in the paperback release of On Desperate Ground.
A New York Times Bestseller, On Desperate Ground is the true account of the battle at the Chosin Resevoir during the Korean War. The story of the "Frozen Chosin," when American forces of the 1st Marine Division penetrated deep into North Korea, assured by their commanders that Mao's Chinese forces would not cross the Yalu River, is a gripping and heart racing story of heroism and bravery.
