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.

U.S. units covered include: 1st Cavalry Division; 2nd Infantry Division, 9th Infantry Regiment, 23rd Infantry Regiment, 38th Infantry Regiment; 187th Regimental Combat Team (Rakkasans); 7th Infantry Division; and 24th Infantry Division. 301 pages, footnoted, with maps, diagrams, and b/w photos.
