From Our Editors

Just five years after the guns fell silent in Europe, the East again echoed to the sounds of war. This time, the battlefield was in Korea, and the ideologies facing off were Democracy and Communism. Presenting complete coverage of the conflict, Michael Varhola’s The Korean War, 1950 – 1955 offers a mapped and illustrated study of the leaders, equipment and tactics of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and their opponents, as well as MacArthur’s amphibious landings at Inchon, the Allied retreat from Chosin and other major battles up to the Allied evacuation in 1953.
