About the Author

DALE A. DYE is a Marine officer who rose through the ranks to retire as a Captain after 21 years of service in war and peace. He is a distinguished graduate of Missouri Military Academy who enlisted in the United States Marine Corps shortly after graduation. Sent to war in Southeast Asia, he served in Vietnam in 1965 and 1967 through 1970, surviving 31 major combat operations.

Appointed a Warrant Officer in 1976, he later converted his commission and was a Captain when he deployed to Beirut, Lebanon with the Multinational Force in 1982-83. He served in a variety of assignments around the world and along the way attained a degree in English Literature from the University of Maryland. Following retirement from active duty in 1984, he spent time in Central America, reporting and training troops for guerrilla warfare in El Salvador, Honduras, and Costa Rica.

Upset with Hollywood's treatment of the American military, he went to Hollywood and established Warriors Inc., the preeminent military training and advisory service to the entertainment industry. He has worked on more than 50 movies and TV shows including several Academy Award and Emmy winning productions. As a Missouri native, he has always been a Mark Twain fan who grew up with Huck Finn fantasies. He is a novelist, actor, director and show business innovator, who wanders between Los Angeles and Lockhart, Texas.

Reviews

Dale Dye writes with an authenticity that cannot be denied. His writing expresses a warrior spirit that is a constant no matter what war he's dealing with.... This is an important addition to the literature of ground-level-view fighting in America's 'forgotten war' in Korea. --The VVA Veteran
Korean Odyssey is just what we would expect of Dale Dye. Well plotted and fast paced with credible characters, historically accurate with just enough technical detail, and the unmistakable ring of authority. Dye's description of the 1950s Marine Corps will resound among warriors of any war. --Barrett Tillman, award-winning author of When the Shooting Stopped: August 1945
Excellent writing and a very enjoyable read....this one is special. I have read a couple of other novelized versions of the campaign but none rang true in the Jarhead sense of behavior, lingo, and combat experience like Dye's work here. --Lt. Col. Vic Taylor, USMC (Ret.)
No one writes the brotherhood of warriors better than Dale Dye. No one. --Stephen Coonts, author of Flight of the Intruder, Liberty's Last Stand and many others
The Forgotten War comes to life as these Marines jump from the page, as real as life, complete with flaws and courage. The veteran will appreciate the details and history, while the layman will become educated as to the horrors of the Korean War and the bravery of our Marines who fought it. --Colin D. Heaton, author of The Star of Africa: The Story of Hans Marseille, the Rogue Luftwaffe Ace Who Dominated the WWII Skies
