Read full description of the books:
The 50th anniversary of the Korean War, which began in June 1950, makes this an appropriate time to revisit this monumental study. Successive generations of U.S. military officers have considered this book an indispensable part of their education. To commemorate the anniversary, this special edition has been updated with battlefield maps, vivid photographs, and a foreword by Gen. Gordon Sullivan, USA (Ret.), former U.S. army chief of staff. T. R. Fehrenbach's narrative brings to life the harrowing and bloody battles that were fought up and down the Korean Peninsula. Partly drawn from official records, operations journals, and histories, it is based largely on the compelling personal narratives of the small-unit commanders and their troops. Unlike any other work on the Korean War, it provides a clear panoramic view, sharp insight into the successes and failures of U.S. forces, and a riveting account of fierce clashes between United Nations troops and the North Korean and Chinese communist invaders.
