The seemingly limitless power of the Chinese-backed North was thrown against the ferocious firepower of the UN-backed South in a war that can be seen today as the stark prelude to Vietnam. Max Hastings drew on first-hand accounts of those who fought on both sides to produce this vivid and incisive reassessment of the Korean War, bringing the military and human dimensions into sharp focus.
Critically acclaimed on publication, "The Korean War" remains the best narrative history of this conflict.

It had the story of significant individuals that saved the country from becoming completely Chinese communism by describing some of the heroics of General 'Bulldog' Walker, Paul Freeman and 'Iron Mike' Colonel John Michealis that should never be forgotten. Between and , the clash of the greatest armies the Western hemisphere had ever seen turned small towns, little-known streams, and obscure meadows in the American countryside into names we will always remember. In the case of the Korean War, there seems to be no attempt to understand the land of Korea, it's culture, or its history that would have enabled the U. Korean National Treasures Illustrated. We then attached ourselves to Rhee, whose only redeeming quality was his fervent anti-Communist stance. Although this book is not new, itstill tells a very relevant story about world politics and the situation the United States found itself in during the vacuum that followed WW2.
