On Desperate Ground--The Marines at the Reservoir, the Korean War's Greatest Battle

On Desperate Ground--The Marines at the Reservoir, the Korean War’s Greatest Battle by Hampton Sides is a dramatic, harrowing account of the pivotal battle between the US and UN forces and the Chinese army, whose strength had been badly underestimated. Trapped by Macarthur’s incorrect assumption that the Chinese would not enter the war, the vastly outnumbered Marines courageously fought under unimaginable conditions. This is excellent military history that includes many interviews with Marines who fought there. It’s a powerful book. Recommended! (Non-Fiction)
