This Kind Of War

By Fehrenbach, T R




This Kind of War is the most comprehensive single-volume history of the Korean-American conflict that began in 1950 and is still affecting United States' foreign policy. Fifty years later, not only does this enlightening account give details of the tactics, infantrymen and equipment, but also chronicles the story of military and political unpreparedness that led to a profligate loss of American lives in Korea. The author T.R. Fehrenbach, an officer in the conflict, provides us with accounts of the combat situation that could only have been written by an eyewitness in the thick of the action. But what truly sets this book apart from other military memoirs is the piercing analysis of the global political maneuverings behind the brutal ground warfare that marked this bloody period of history, one which has been all but forgotten. Hailed as "a must for all soldiers and former soldiers" by an Amazon.com reviewer, This Kind of War restores the Korean War to its rightful place in American history -- as a touchstone for United States foreign engagement and a lesson for politicians ready to shed American blood on far-away soil.

This Kind of War; A Study in Unpreparedness

Fehrenbach, T. R.

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1963. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. Very good/Good. xii, 688, [4] pages. Illustrated endpapers. Maps. Chronology. Glossary of Principal Weapons. Key to Map Symbols. Index. DJ has some wear, wrinkling and soiling. Format is approximately 6.5 inches by 9.5 inches. Theodore Reed "T. R." Fehrenbach, Jr. (January 12, 1925 - December 1, 2013) was an American historian, columnist, and the former head of the Texas Historical Commission (1987-1991). He graduated from Princeton University in 1947 and wrote more than twenty books, including the bestseller Lone Star: A History of Texas and Texans and This Kind of War, about the Korean War. Senator John McCain called this book "perhaps the best book ever written on the Korean War". Secretary of Defense James Mattis said "There's a reason I recommended T. R. Fehrenbach's book...that we all pull it out and read it one more time." For almost 30 years, he wrote a weekly column on Sundays for the San Antonio Express-News. "This Kind of War has been studied by generations of soldiers. Fehrenbach describes good decisions and bad ones with insight and expertise. But what he does best of all is his eloquent, sometimes painful description of the GIs who must bear the burden of those decisions. This book has a challenging theme, that a great power must maintain a highly professional army organized along lines different from the society it is set up to protect. This work is written from the perspective of those who fought it. Drawn from official records, operations journals and histories, this book is also largely based on the personal narratives of the small-unit commanders and their troops. The book provides both an overview of the war, and a "you were there" account of American soldiers in fierce battle against the North Korean and Chinese communist invaders. As Americans and North Koreans continue to face each other across the 38th Parallel, This Kind of War commemorates the past and offers vital lessons for the future.
