What People are Saying About This

Colin L. Powell

This Kind of War has been studied by two generations of soldiers. Fehrenbach describes good decisions and bad ones with insight and expertise. But what he does best of all, and what is so memorable, is his eloquent, sometimes painful description of the GIs who must bear the burden of those decisions. That is the awful beauty of this book � it cuts straights to the heart of all the political and military errors and reveals the brave souls who have to bleed and die for mistakes made. A timely reissue of a military classic.

Terrence Fehrenbach has written the best book I have ever read in terms of explaining the Korean War. Eloquently written, he describes things from many different points of view, from low to high-ranking military personnel to politicians. The book reads like a novel, but gives one a very clear, unbiased understanding of the subject. First published in the mid sixties, this book has been in and out of print periodically. My feeling is that this work should be readily available and required reading for students of American History.
