This is the story of the first battle by Canada's first soldiers in the Korean War: the 2nd Battalion of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. These volunteers were straight from Central Casting: truck drivers, construction workers, kids just out of high school, and bored farm boys. Outnumbered and outgunned, this people's army of amateurs beat off some of the toughest troops on earth.
This battle that's become a legend takes its name from a nearby peanut-sized village: Kapyong.
It's become a mythic Canadian story, except this is mythology that is true and real.
