Ridgway duels for Korea by Roy Edgar Appleman( )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the end of 1950, the UN forces in Korea had suffered a series of decisive defeats by the Chinese. They were in retreat, fleeing south, perhaps even out of Korea altogether. Eighth Army's commander, Lt. Gen. Walton H. Walker, had just died in an accident. The situation was as bleak as the wintry landscape." "In this third volume of Roy E. Appleman's operational histories of the Korean War from November 1950 to July 1951, the author follows the UN forces as they about-face and maneuver the Chinese and North Korean armies back to the 38th Parallel. It covers the Chinese so-called 3rd, 4th, and 5th Phase offensives, during the course of which the UN army was initially forced 50 miles south of the Han River and then rebounded north toward Seoul, which changed hands twice during this period." "This volume is based on the official records of U.S. units at all levels and on interviews and correspondence with survivors and the commanders involved, including General Ridgway. Illustrated with photographs and two dozen situation maps, it meticulously chronicles the bitter facts as well as heroic efforts in a tragic and costly war that has been institutionalized as a television sitcom. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

East of Chosin : entrapment and breakout in Korea, 1950 by Roy Edgar Appleman( Book )

10 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and Korean and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roy Appleman's East of Chosin, first published in 1987, won acclaim from reviewers, readers, and veterans and their families. For the first time, there was one complete and accessible record of what happened to the army troops trapped east of the Chosin Reservoir during the first wintry blast of the Korean War. Based heavily on the author's interviews and correspondence with the survivors, East of Chosin provided some of those men with their first clue to the fate of fellow soldiers. In November of 1950, U.S. forces had pushed deep into North Korea. Unknown to them, Chinese troops well equipped for below zero temperatures and blizzard conditions were pushing south. With the 1st Marine Division on the west side of the frozen Chosin reservoir, the army's hastily assembled 31st Regimental Combat Team, 3,000 strong, advanced up the east side of the reservoir. Task Force Faith in the extreme northern position caught the surprise Chinese attack. With rifles and vehicles often immobilized in the cold and snow, the task force struggled to retreat through a tortuous mountain gauntlet of enemy fire. With truckloads of dead and wounded trapped along on the road, a few of the 385 survivors trudged across the frozen reservoir to alert the marines to their plight.
