Covers the Eighth U.S. Army, 1st Cavalry Division, 2nd Infantry Division, 3rd Infantry Division, 5th Infantry Regiment RCT, 7th Infantry Division, 24th Infantry Division, 25th Infantry Division, 1st Marine Division + Air and Naval support. There simply are not any superlatives which can adequately describe this masterful work of research. There is no other book on the Korea War anywhere and at any price which equals the massive volume of authoritative and documented historical text 'FIGHTING ON THE BRINK' contains.

General Ent has done more than a magnificent job of research, providing a highly readable account of the first four months of the Korean War. He has artfully woven hundreds of first-person accounts into his work with a prose which draws the reader down into the mud and gunsmoke as history comes intensely alive.

This massive volume of nearly a 500,000/half-million words covers EVERY COMBAT UNIT involved in the defense of Pusan, with many unit operations detailed down to the company and even platoon level, and chronologically day-by-day.

Dozens of superb topographical maps clearly trace the movements and positions of units in most major battles studied. The supporting photographs are completely relevant and many are from private collections which have never before published. This is an unforgettable classic. Extra large "coffee-table size" volume. Embellished cover.

This book chronicles the Pusan Perimeter campaign, providing clear insight into occupation in Korea, Japan, and Okinawa prior to the Korean War. With an historical text written by General Uzal Ent (Ret.), a rifle platoon veteran of the Perimeter, this book details the strategies, tactics and actions of the troops, yet includes the personal accounts of hundreds of soldiers and marines who were there. This book is the definitive history of the Pusan Perimeter with hundreds of photos, maps and an index, and is a must for any Korean War history buff.
