Dan Bjarnason was a television news and documentary reporter for the National at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for over 35 years.

He lives in Toronto.
"Bjarnason's book, Triumph at Kapyong, documents an extraordinary moment in Canadian and Korean history that was as unlikely as it was unknown." - Toronto Star (Canada) author and book feature, May 2011 "Bjarnason mixes the official histories with a visit to the site, which makes for a rounded description. The sights, the sounds and the smells give an immediacy that official recountings exclude." -- The Winnipeg Free Press One wonders, had Bjarnason and his reporting skills been present back in 1951, if Kapyongs legacy today might be one of nationwide remembrance, rather than a nearly forgotten footnote. -- Ted Barris, Canada's History -- http://www.canadashistory.ca, July 7, 2011 a tribute to not only an oft-neglected war, but also Canadas contribution to peacekeeping and active countermeasures against Communist incursions. -- The Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Strategies, Jan 17, 2012
