CONFLICT: KOREAN WAR HISTORY. Bings alive the shock of the North Korean invasion, the 'bug-out' of the terrified G.I.s, the blare of Chinese bugles in the night, the quiet heroism of soldiers and marines dying.

Click to EnlargeCONFLICT: Korean War History. by best selling author/historian Robert Leckie. ARMY TIMES writes "THIS IS THE BEST HISTORY OF THE KOREAN WAR." In June 1950 Communist forces poured across the 38th Parallel (the arbitrary, militarily indefensible line of latitude separating the Communist North from the independent Republic of Korea) to unite the country by force. Three bloody, bitter years of fighting ensued during which the seesawing fortunes of this frustrating war thwarted North Korea's ambitions while treating the ill-equipped, overconfident UN peacekeeping forces, mostly Americans, no less harshly.Conflict examines the war in all its military, political, and human dimensions: the battles at Pusan Perimeter, at Inchon, at Chosin Reservoir, at Heartbreak Ridge; significant figures like Syngman Rhee, Kim Il Sung, Ridgway, MacArthur, and Truman; controversies like MacArthur's dismissal, the difficulties of P.O.W. exchanges, and charges of brainwashing and germ warfare; as well as penetrating analyses of the performance of the American soldier, and the war's effect on the U.S. military and our national psyche. As such, Conflict stands as an unsurpassed, vivid contribution to history.

Leckie brings alive the shock of the North Korean invasion, the 'bug-out' of the terrified G.I.s, the blare of Chinese bugles in the night, the quiet heroism of soldiers and marines dying... 496 pages. Illustrated. Softcover.

REVIEWS: "What a contribution he has made!"___General Matthew Ridgway. "Leckie does not write dryly: he is a straight-punching advocate and never timid about his own judgments.? The book is meaty with information, with the relative strength of opposing forces, orders of battle, etc., and yet it never bogs down with statistics. The writing scores many runs and more [that a few] hits."___ New York Times Book Review
