Darkmoon: Eighth Army Special Operations in the Korean War
"With the historian's eye for detail and context and the novelist's ken for an exciting story, Ed Evanhoe captures the seat-of-the-pants evolution of a motley group of Americans and Britons. Larger-than-life characters, they came from the U.S. military and the OSS, from the British Special Air Service and Jedburghs. Evanhoe lets the reader in on their training with Korean volunteers and their movement north, overland and by boat and parachute as well as in the first helicopter operations. Their unorthodox procedures, weapons, and tactics, he shows, led to great successes and tragic mistakes, both of which are examined in this warts-and-all approach."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
