9781477248812: This Savage War: MacArthur's Korea

The war in Korea (Chosun) was the first peacekeeping war for the United Nations (UN). It was brutal and vicious from the start. Gen. Douglas MacArthur described the first 10 months of the war, when he was in command, as the most savage fighting he had ever experienced in his long military career. During this period, the North Korea People's Army (NKPA, or In Min Gun) gave little quarter to prisoners, military or civilian, and only one of every three Americans taken early in the war lived to tell about it.

While recuperating, Art served at the Infantry Center as the Troop Information and Education (TI&E) officer of Fort Benning and later served as a counterintelligence officer in Europe and as an espionage agent behind the Iron Curtain under cover of the State Department and UN. While assigned as Chief of Intelligence (G-2) of XIII U.S. Army Corps, Art was hospitalized for two years and treated for combat wounds and injuries, and was retired early in his Regular Army rank of major.
