WONJU: The Gettysburg of the Korean War, by J.D. Coleman. Just as the Battle of Gettysburg was the Confederacy's high water mark of the American Civil War, the Chinese offensive at Wonju was its high point from which China's hopes for victory soon faded. When most people think of the Korean War, the fifteen days of combat at Wonju are seldom recalled. Author J.D. Coleman was a pivotal battle, and he has written a first-class history of action in the Korean War. The book is well written and well illustrated, and its prose is riveting in its description of battles and courageous fighting.
