FIRE AND ICE: THE KOREAN WAR 1950-1953. A detailed overview of the conflict in Korea presented in a fresh and interesting 'fact-book' style format.

Click to EnlargeFIRE AND ICE: Korean War 1950-1953. Michael Varhola's The Korean War covers every aspect of this overlooked conflict in an original and fast-paced style.


Jammed with facts, myths, statistics and analysis, Varhola's study includes chapters on leading personalities on both sides, all of the major actions including the Inchon Landing and retreat from Chosin, and the roles of the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps. Includes a Foreword by Col. John E. Jessup, a Korean War veteran and the author of a number of books, including An Encyclopedic Dictionary of Conflict and Conflict Resolution, 1945-1996. Michael Varhola has written and edited several books, and has founded or managed several publications, and has been published in dozens of other publications. FIRE & ICE is an unusual and highly informative detailed overview from the hectic back-and-forth fighting of the first year of the war to the static combat of the last year. Subjects covered include major military operations; Orders of Battle and U.S. ROK, North Korean, Chinese, and each U.N. participant's ground, air and sea forces; the civilian and military leadership on both sides; weapons, vehicles, and equipment; Casualties and POWs; and the armistice negotiations. In addition, "FIRE AND ICE" is enhanced with numerous photographs, maps, and illustrations to help readers visualize the major actions and events of he Korean War. This handy "At A Glance" volume contains an exceptional amount of material on the Korean Conflict, with much information that will be new to virtually all readers, such as dissension between the U.S. and South Korea, the differing treatment of prisoners by the Chinese and North Koreans, the widespread service of Korean nationals in American units, and the important contribution made by Turkey, the British Commonwealth and other nations to the U.N. effort. Chronology, Acronyms and Military Terms, Facts and Figures. 334 pages. 12 original maps 24 photos and illustrations 6 x 9
