An account of the Korean War for the general reader. The author traces the course of the war and provides detailed descriptions of the battles and operations as well as a discussion of the strategy involved. A more scholarly history of the war is Korea: The Limited War (New York, St. Martin’s Press, 1964. 511 p.), by David Rees, a British historian. Rees discusses the development of American policy toward Korea, amply covers the military operations, and deals with the British response to the war. In Pork Chop Hill; the American Fighting Man in Action, Korea, Spring, 1953 (New York, Morrow, 1956. 315 p.), Samuel L. A. Marshall analyzes in detail an encounter in which the Americans won an important victory.

Bibliographical references included in "Notes" (p. 281–297). Bibliography: p. 298–306.

A major issue during the early part of the Korean War was the policy disagreement between President Truman and General MacArthur which subsequently led to MacArthur’s dismissal from all of his commands. Spanier traces the origins of the policy differences between the two men and shows how and why these differences developed to the point at which Truman had no alternative but to relieve MacArthur of his duties. The author, in addition, uses the controversy to analyze the problem of civil-military relations during a limited war. A briefer interpretation of the disagreement between Truman and MacArthur is Trumbull Higgins’ Korea and the Fall of MacArthur; a Précis in Limited War (New York, Oxford University Press, 1960. 229 p.).
