From Library Journal:

Summers, a well-known writer on military affairs, follows his successful Vietnam War Almanac (LJ 1/86) with a useful compendium on a less-familiar conflict. This work incorporates a brief narrative overview of the war, a detailed chronology, and approximately 375 alphabetically listed references covering the war's actions, weapons, formations, personalities, and concepts. Though his sympathy for MacArthur is as marked as his criticism of Truman, Summers takes a generally evenhanded approach to his subjects. Despite an irritating number of entries consisting only of references to other entries, readers seeking basic information on Korean War arcanae will be well served by this alma nac.
