9780028811130: THIS KIND OF WAR (H)

This dramatic account of the nearly disastrous Korean War is written from the perspective of those who fought it. While partly drawn from official records, operations journals and histories, this book is largely based on the personal narratives of the small-unit commanders and their troops. The book provides both an overview of the war, and a "you were there" account of American soldiers in fierce battle against the North Korean and Chinese communist invaders. T.R. Fehrenbach is the author of "Comanches", "Lone Star: A History of Texas and the Texans" and "Seven Keys to Texas".

About the Author:

Colonel T. R. Fehrenbach (Ret.) commanded U.S. Army units in Korea at the platoon, company, and battalion levels. He is the author of Comanches: The Destruction of a People; Lone Star: A History of Texas and the Texans; and Seven Keys to Texas. He has also been a contributor to many publications, including Esquire, the Atlantic, the Saturday Evening Post, and the New Republic. He lives in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife, Lillian. Kevin Foley has over thirty years' experience in radio and television broadcasting, commercial voice-overs, and audiobook narration. He has recorded over 150 audiobooks, including Storm Rising by Gary Naiman, 100 Ways to Bring Out Your Best by Roger Fritz, The Last Witness by Joel Goldman, and River Thunder by Gary McCarthy, for which he earned a Spur Award for Best Audiobook from the Western Writers of America.

From Library Journal:

"The author has chosen to alternate the broad view of events on the Korean and international scene with narratives of the contemporaneous experiences of individual soldiers at the front and in rear echelons," said LJ's reviewer (LJ 1/15/63). Fehrenbach's assessment is frank and often unflattering to America's abilities and the motivation of the common soldier.
