The Korean war 1950-53User Review - Book Verdict
For the 50th anniversary of the Korean War (1950-53), retired British Army veteran Catchpole has produced a well-balanced, succinct history of the first war fought by the United Nations against an aggressor state. This trim volume adequately covers the politics, diplomacy, wartime operations, and aftermath of an undeclared war that still has no peace treaty. The author's research is solid and his narrative lively, providing vivid anecdotal insight into the prelude to war, the ground combat, the surprise Chinese intervention, naval and air warfare, prisoners of war, propaganda, public opinion, and little-known aspects of partisan warfare and covert operations. New scholarship includes recently unclassified Chinese and Russian source material. Catchpole clearly reveals the contentious relationship between General MacArthur and President Truman and is accurately critical of MacArthur and other high-ranking U.S. Army officers for their arrogance and lack of tactical and strategic foresight. There are strong references to British and Commonwealth contributions to the UN effort. This excellent one-volume history is highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
