“The late Halberstam's last work examines the causes, course, and lasting effects of the Korean War. While focusing on the bravery of the fighting men on both sides of the conflict, he shows the effect of poor strategic thinking by military and civilian leaders and provides vivid accounts of daily battles on the field and in the world capitals where the fighting is directed. A dense historical context offers a better understanding of the forces and events that shaped the war and its aftermath.”
