This dramatic account of the nearly disastrous Korean War is written from the perspective of those who fought it. While partly drawn from official records, operations journals and histories, this book is largely based on the personal narratives of the small-unit commanders and their troops. The book provides both an overview of the war, and a "you were there" account of American soldiers in fierce battle against the North Korean and Chinese communist invaders. T.R. Fehrenbach is the author of "Comanches", "Lone Star: A History of Texas and the Texans" and "Seven Keys to Texas".

"* "Immensely readable." - New York Times "Fehrenbach describes good decisions and bad ones with insight and expertise. But what he does best of all, and what is so memorable, is his eloquent, some-times painful description of the GIs who must bear the burden of those decisions. That is the awful beauty of this book - it cuts straight to the heart of all the political and military errors, and reveals the brave souls who have to bleed and die for mistakes made." - Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.)"About the Author:
