As Harold Davis fell under heavy machine-gun fire, his body riddled with bullet wounds and life seemingly slipping away from him, he could not have realised that he was one of the Korean War�s fortunate soldiers. American medics sprang into action and against all odds saved the plucky young Scot, a man who proved tougher than the bullets the brutal enemy showered him with.
Unlike tens of thousands of American and British troops fighting in the notorious 1950s war, he lived to tell the tale of his horrific experiences on the front line. Now, for the first time, in Tougher than Bullets, the Black Watch hero shares his vivid and harrowing memories of life in one of the bloodiest wars of his generation.
A remarkable character, Davis was pieced back together during the course of almost two years in recovery and defied doctors to return to his pre-war love of football and build a career as one of Scotland�s most feared and revered defenders at Rangers Football Club.
