Publisher Description

It was the first war we could not win. At no other time since World War II have two superpowers met in battle.

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 two-hundred vetsincluding 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.

Relevant to the war in Ukraine

I read this thinking about the war in Ukraine. There are lots of interesting parallels.

Accurate

A sad story. Too much political detail.
