Air Combat Over the Eastern Front & Korea: a Soviet Fighter Pilot Remembers
Kramarenko, Sergei
ISBN: 9781844157358
Pen & Sword  2008 
 Hard Cover New book, 164 pages. Sergei Kramarenko was a lucky man. As a Soviet fighter pilot, an ace, he fought in two wars - first against the Luftwaffe, then the US Air Force - and survived. This is his story. On the Eastern Front in the bitter conflict with the Germans, he duelled with Messerschmitt 109s and Focke-Wulf 190s. Then, in Korea, flying a MiG-15, he came up against the Americans, the British and the Australians, in the first fighter-against-fighter clashes of the jet age. His accounts of combat against the F-86 Sabres, F-84 Thunderjets and Gloster Meteors are among the most vivid and remarkable of his long career. In over ten years of as a front-line fighter pilot he took part in a revolution in the development of combat flying. His candid, intensely personal and unflinching account gives a rare inside view of life in the Red Air Force.  As New/As New

Chosin: Heroic Ordeal of the Korean War
Hammel, Eric
ISBN: 9780760331545
Zenith Press Osceola, Wisconsin, U.S.A. 2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 457 pages. It was 1950, a brutally cold November in North Korea, and the war seemed all but over. And then a force of nearly 70,000 Chinese "volunteers" crossed the Yalu River, encircling the 30,000 United Nations troops at the Chosin Reservoir. The epic story of what followed - one of the iconic battles in Marine history - is told for the first time in gut-level detail in this book. From the point of view of the men in the foxholes and tanks, outposts and command posts, Chosin offers a harrowing, firsthand account of the 1st Marine Divisions breakout battle against overwhelming Chinese forces in the bitter North Korean winter. Seasoned military historian Eric Hammel describes the errors and miscalculations by American higher-ups that left the division strung out at the end of a narrow road scores of miles from the sea. Then he plunges into the action: the massing of Chinese forces; the punishing climate and terrain; the high-level over-confidence that crippled the American command; and the onset of the overpowering Chinese assault. His account provides a wealth of tactical and human detail and small unit action: from an intelligence officers efforts to make sense of conflicting reports, to engineers improvising a bridge from logs and snow, from Marines marching to POW camps, to a battle-weary messengers discovery of headquarter staff safely ensconced behind friendly lines, settling down in formal dress to a full-course dinner. The result is the most complete book ever written on this heroic battle, a masterful narrative from the perspective of those who fought.  As New

HMAS Bataan, 1952: An Australian Warship in the Korean War
Cooper, Anthony
ISBN: 9781742231181
UNSW Press  2010 
 Hard Cover New book, 295 pages. In June 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea and the Korean War began. During the three-year conflict, HMAS Bataan, a Royal Australian Navy Tribal-Class destroyer, was deployed on two tours of duty. This is the story of her second tour in 1952. Bataan had a busy time in 1952, screening carriers, launching and recovering aircraft, rescuing ditched aircrew, patrolling the inshore channels and islands, policing fleets of Korean fishing junks in search of clandestine Communist minelayers, and firing thousands of rounds of shells at enemy positions inshore. Based on first hand accounts, and told through the perspectives of a 'lower deck' seaman and the ship's 'upper deck' commander, HMAS Bataan, 1952 details key episodes and events of the naval war in Korea.  As New/As New

Rottman, Gordon L.
ISBN: 1841769614
Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2006 
 Soft Cover New book, 96 pages, CAM162. Inch'on was probably the most significant campaign in the Korean theater, as well as being the last major amphibious assault of division-size conducted in the history of warfare.

The success of the Inch'on campaign is a testament to the sheer initiative of the officers and NCOs conducted it. This book details the strategy and tactics that led to the operation's success, as well as narrating the experience of the battle in fascinating detail. Contents: Introduction: Origins of the Campaign; The Battleground; Chronology; Opposing Plans; Defense of Inch'on and Seoul; Opposing Commanders; Opposing Forces: Joint Task Force 7; X US Corps; 1st Marine (Reinforced); 7th Infantry Division; North Korean Forces; Operation Chromate; Aftermath; The Battlefield Today; Bibliography; Index.  As New

Keep off the Skyline: The Story of Ron Cashman and the Diggers in Korea
Thompson, Peter; Macklin, Robert
ISBN: 1740310837
John Wiley & Sons Australia  2004 
 Soft Cover New book, some rubbing wear to cover. "Keep off the skyline" was Ron Cashman's watchword in wartime Korea when a silhouette on the horizon invariably meant sudden death. It helped to keep him alive in confronting a vigilant and dangerous enemy for almost two years of armed conflict. And he has applied the same phrase ever since, through another fifty turbulent years. The Korean War has been central to Ron Cashman's life and it is the central theme of the book. The Korean War is ritually referred to in the Australian media as "The Forgotten War," yet it was never well enough known to be forgotten. How many Australians have ever been familiar with the Kapyong Valley, Little Gibraltar, Maryang San or The Hook? Very few, we believe. These were scenes of Australian heroism and Australian sacrifice that deserve their place in the public mind among the easily recognisable battle grounds of the two World Wars. It is by any measure a fascinating tale of war and post-war chaos; a compelling narrative of frontline exposure to an almost indestructible enemy and a horrifying descent into psychological terror. It is the story of a soldier who joined B Company as a rookie in the middle of savage firefight; who was wounded in action three times; who killed men in hand-to-hand combat; and who, in a brief interlude between long periods of barbaric trench warfare, met and fell in love with the woman who would see him through not only the armed conflict, but its unexpected aftermath.  Very Good

Macarthurs War: Korea and the Undoing of an American Hero
Weintraub, Stanley
ISBN: 0743205030
Touchstone Books Old Tappan, New Jersey, U.S.A. 2001 
 Soft Cover Used book, 385 pages. Rubbing wear and foxing of cover. The Korean War - America's forgotten war - was one of America's most brutal, claiming the lives of American soldiers at more than three times the rate of losses in Vietnam. At the helm was the towering military hero Douglas MacArthur, whose pride and insubordination took the conflict to the edge of nuclear war. In MacArthur's War, acclaimed historian Stanley Weintraub offers a blow-by-blow account of the months of MacArthur's command. Relying upon extensive new research and giving voice to ordinary soldiers, Weintraub has crafted a horrowing tale of modern warfare at its bloodiest and a telling portrait of the man who was the driving force behind it all.  Fair

Shadow Warriors: The Covert War in Korea
Breuer, William B.
ISBN: 047114438X
John Wiley & Sons Inc Somerset, New Jersey, U.S.A. 1996 
 Pictorial Cover New book, 260 pages. On the eve of its invasion of South Korea in June 1950, North Korea employed a trick so clever as to prompt comparisons to the Trojans and their wooden horse. Through a complex scheme involving false defectors to South Korea, North Korea created such a compelling diversion that Western military officials ignored obvious signs of the impending attack. Here, the vastly prolific Breuer (last year's Feuding Allies, etc.) shows that the "Trojan horse" episode was but one of scores of covert missions conducted by the U.S., China and both Koreas around the time of the conflict. Interweaving fresh material and much that is already known of the "forgotten war," he packs his absorbing text with colorful yarns about such missions as a U.S. Army official's attempt to infiltrate North Korea and kidnap a corpse so that he might test it for signs of the plague. But Breuer includes nuggets of key information as well, including details of the secretive Joint Services Operation, which ran American clandestine ops in Korea making this as suitable for serious students of history as for fans of cloak-and-dagger mayhem, military-style.   As New

The Coldest Winter: America and the Korean War
Halberstam, David
ISBN: 9780230736191
MacMillan  2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 719 pages. Up until now, Korea has been the black hole of modern American history. This book changes that. Halbertam gives us a masterful narrative of the political decisions and miscalculations on both sides. He charts the disastrous path that led to the massive entry of Chinese forces near the Yalu, and that caught Douglas MacArthur and his soldiers by surprise. He provides astonishingly vivid and nuanced portraits of all the major figures - Eisenhower, Truman, Acheson, Kim and Mao, and Generals MacArthur, Almond, and Ridgeway. At the same time, Halberstam provides us with his trademark highly evocative narrative journalism, chronicling the crucial battles with reportage of the highest order. At the heart of the book are the individual stories of the soldiers on the front lines who were left to deal with the consequences of the dangerous misjudgements and competing agendas of powerful men. We meet them, follow them, and see some of the most dreadful battles in history through their eyes.  As New

The Korean Conflict
Smith, Thomas W.
ISBN: 1592572138
Alpha Books East Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A. 2004 
 Soft Cover New book, 278 pages. During the last days of World War II, Korea was drawn into an international crisis when it was invaded by the Soviet Union. Eventually divided into two seperate nations, the Korean peninsula erupted into a bloody new war fought by the United Nations - under the leadership of the United States - against North Korea, China, and the Soviet Union. Hundreds of thousands of military and civilian lives were list in three years. And when the smoke cleared, two huge armies stood poised to resume the killing either side of the 38th parallel. This book is a complete history of the conflict in Korea from its early beginnings as an isolated country often referred to as "the Hermit Kingdom", to its defeat at the hands of foreign invaders such as the Mongols, the Chinese, and the Japanese Empire, and on into the present. W. Thomas Smith Jr. tells us the dramatic story of what many refer to as the "forgotten war", battle by bloody battle, America's first "limited war". But the story doesn't end with the shooting war, as the Korean conflict continues to this day, a time bomb that threatens global peace.  As New

Their War for Korea: American, Asian, and European Combatants and Civilians, 1945-1953
Millett, Allan R.
ISBN: 1574884344
Potomac Books Inc Herndon, Virginia, U.S.A. 2003 
 Hard Cover New book, 310 pages, some shelf wear to cover. More than 36,000 American servicemen died in combat or by other causes during the Korean War. As terrible as this figure is, it pales in comparison to the war's nearly two million civilian deaths. This book tells the individual's story. Although war as a human phenomenon has essential elements that have repeated themselves from the dawn of recorded history, every war is unique unto itself. The forty six vignettes, placed in proper context by renowned historian and best selling author Allan R. Millet, catch the uniquely Korean and international flavor of this terrible war, while telling its essentially human story.  As New/Good
