About this title:

Synopsis: 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".

Review: "This Kind of War" has been studied by two generations of soldiers. 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, sometimes 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. A timely reissue of a military classic.

Immensely readable.

A comprehensive and impressively written history of the Korean War.

The lesson of the Korean War as it has not yet been told by anyone . . . terse, machine-gun bursts of common sense.
