Though it's a bit short on context and detail, the movie boasts a host of riveting interviews with the men caught behind enemy lines in the brutal winter battle at North Korea's Chosin Reservoir.

Miraculous, cinematically dramatic escapes abound in these stories, but there's no triumph in the eyes of the tellers -- only guilt, remorse and pain.

A thoughtful if slightly limited revisit to the "forgotten war," the American involvement in the Korean conflict.

Audience Reviews for Chosin

AHC 5/25/14 Well done doc that captures the horrible conditions faced during this battle. The many first hand accounts tell the story at the foxhole level. Amazing what men can endure.
