"S. L.A. "Slam" Marshall was a veteran of World War I and a combat historian during World War II. He startled the military and civilian world in 1947 by announcing that, in an average infantry company, no more than one in four soldiers actually fired their weapons while in contact with the enemy. His contention was based on interviews he conducted immediately after combat in both the European and Pacific theaters of World War II." "To remedy the gunfire imbalance he proposed changes to infantry training designed to ensure that American soldiers in future wars brought more fire upon the enemy. His studies during the Korean War showed that the ratio of fire had more than doubled since World War II."--Jacket
Pork Chop Hill; the American fighting man in action, Korea, spring, 1953 by S. L. A Marshall( Book )

19 editions published between 1956 and 2003 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Compared to Gettysburg or the Ardennes, the battle for Pork Chop Hill is hardly more than a skirmish. But to the men of the 7th Infantry Division, it contained all the heroism and sacrifice which characterized the bloody mountain fighting of the Korean War. The action began on April 16, 1953 and lasted 48 hours. Faced with human wave attacks by a determined and skillful Red Chinese force many times its size, the defenders fought a brutal hand to hand battle. The enemy controlled the high ground, artillery fire rained on the reserve forces, and it was only exceptional courage which held the line
