Description


It was the first war we could not win. At no other time since World War II have two superpowers met in battle. In this extensive history, preeminent military historian Max Hastings 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 two hundred 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.
