Synopsis:

At 4:00 a.m. on June 25, 1950, North Korean artillery began pounding South Korean positions: the Korean War began. American officials had seriously underestimated the North Korean forces that quickly invaded South Korea nearly overrunning the country. US intelligence had failed to predict the attack. In Japan General Douglas MacArthur was sending in gloomy reports after President Truman had decided the United States had to stand up to Communist aggression in East Asia. A duel began between the president and the general throughout the first full year of the war, ending with the sacking of the man many Americans considered a national hero.

Book Description:

A general history of the critical first year of the Korean War, this study deals primarily with relations between General Douglas MacArthur and President Harry S. Truman from June 1950 to April 1951, a period that defined the war's direction until the signing of the Armistice two years later.

Book Description ENIGMA BOOKS, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A comprehensive history of the first year of the Korean War dealing primarily with the period from June 1950 to April 1951, which defined the war s direction until General Mark Clark, the final United Nations commander in the Korean War, signed the armistice at Pan Mun Jom on July 27, 1953. The author focuses on a number of key issues. Were the disagreements between General Douglas MacArthur and President Harry S. Truman over Formosa and carrying the war to Red China as pronounced as commonly thought? How far apart on these issues were the Joint Chiefs of Staff and MacArthur? Just how great a role did the United Nations play in the Korean War? How wise was Truman s decision to cross the 38th parallel? Did MacArthur play a crucial role in it? Did intervention in the Korean War best serve America s national self-interests? On October 10, 1945, having travelled on the Soviet ship Pugachev from Khabarovsk, Kim-il-Sung and 66 fellow soldiers of the 88th Brigade landed at Wonsan. Throughout the coming struggles, these men would serve as the core of the North Korean military command. According to former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, who published his memoirs in 1970, Kim, not Stalin, initiated the invasion plan. Referring to the Korean intervention as a police action, Truman controversially went to war without a congressional declaration of war or a joint congressional resolution. The U.N. Security Council resolutions were the basis for American involvement and the administration continually tried to avoid the appearance of unilateral action by repeatedly emphasizing that the United States was acting on behalf of the United Nations. As it was, the United States carried the major burden of the war, furnishing the bulk of the air units, naval forces, troops, and equipment. About the Author DENNIS D.
