Give Me Tomorrow tells an epic story of valor and sacrifice by a legendary Marine company in the Korean War. “What would you want if you could have any wish?” asked the photojournalist, looking expectantly at the haggard and bloodied Marine before him. The Marine gaped back incredulously at his interviewer. “Give me tomorrow,” he said, as the photographer snapped one of the most iconic pictures of the Korean War. After nearly four months of continuous and agonizing combat on the battlefields of Korea, such a desperate yet simple request seemed impossible, and for many men of George Company, or “Bloody George” as they were known—one of the Forgotten War’s most decorated yet unrecognized companies—it was a wish that would not come true.

Combat historian, bestselling author, and public speaker Patrick K. O'Donnell has written ten critically acclaimed books that recount the epic stories of America's wars from the Revolution to Iraq. He is a premier expert on elite and special operations units and irregular warfare. O’Donnell’s books are described as “nonfiction that read like fiction. O’Donnell’s most recent book is, Washington’s Immortals: The Untold Story of an Elite Regiment Who Changed the Course of the Revolution.
