A very readable book about an almost forgotten battle in almost forgotten war.S.L.A. Marshall went to Korea as a war correspondent . At the request of the army he spent his time intereviewing the troops as they came back from patrols and battles to analyze our methods to see if they were working (this is the same thing he was doing in WW2). This book is the result of those interviews and gives an almost minute by minute account of the battle. A must read for any military history buff. ( )
