Description
It was the first war we could not win. At no other time since World War II have two superpowers met in battle. Now Max Hastings, preeminent military historian takes us back to the bloody bitter struggle to restore South Korean independence after the Communist invasion of June 1950. Using personal accounts from interviews with more than 200 vets --including the Chinese --Hastings follows real officers and soldiers through the battles. He brilliantly captures the Cold War crisis at home--the strategies and politics of Truman, Acheson, Marshall, MacArthur, Ridgway, and Bradley--and shows what we should have learned in the war that was the prelude to Vietnam.

display_descriptionBest general history of this conflict. Draws some chilling parallels with Vietnam. In both wars, the President sent troops without a declaration of war, supported unpopular regimes, U.S. strategy relied too much on aerial bombing, and the American public became disillusioned.--Cf. Choice, July/August 1988.
