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".

About the Author: Colonel T. R. Fehrenbach (Ret.) is the author of Comanches: The Destruction of a People; Lone Star: A History of Texas and the Texans; and Seven Keys to Texas.

Kevin Foley has over thirty years' experience in radio and television broadcasting, commercial voice-overs, and audiobook narration. He has recorded over 150 audiobooks, and he won an Earphones Award from AudioFile magazine for his narration of Cognitive Surplus by Clay Shirky.
