into war with an empty gun

Robert Brownbridge ’52, Boise, Idaho, is the author of “Into War with an Empty Gun.”

“Often called America’s forgotten war, few of us, then as well as now, really understood the day-to-day realities of the Korean War. That is where Robert Brownbridge’s beautifully written and richly detailed work fills a void. For the feel, the taste, the reality of the Korean War, with all its ambiguities and contradictions, there’s nothing better than Brownbridge’s moving memoir, ‘Into War with an Empty Gun.’” —Bob Blauner, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, UC Berkeley, author of “Resisting McCarthyism.”




Lesley Johnson Farmer ’71 published her 30th book, “Youth-Serving Libraries in Japan, Russia, and the United States” (Scarecrow Press, 2012).
