This kind of war : a study in unpreparedness by T. R Fehrenbach( Book )

19 editions published between 1963 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Comanches : the history of a people by T. R Fehrenbach( Book )

12 editions published between 1974 and 2007 in English and French and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Authoritative and immediate, this is the classic account of the most powerful of the American Indian tribes. T.R. Fehrenbach traces the Comanches? rise to power, from their prehistoric origins to their domination of the high plains for more than a century until their demise in the face of Anglo-American expansion. Master horseback riders who lived in teepees and hunted bison, the Comanches were stunning orators, disciplined warriors, and the finest makers of arrows. They lived by a strict legal code and worshipped within a cosmology of magic. As he portrays the Comanche lifestyle, Fehrenbach re-creates their doomed battle against European encroachment. While they destroyed the Spanish dream of colonizing North America and blocked the French advance into the Southwest, the Comanches ultimately fell before the Texas Rangers and the U.S. Army in the great raids and battles of the mid-nineteenth century. This is a classic American story, vividly and poignantly told."--Publisher's website

"T.R. Fehrenbach's narrative brings to life the harrowing and bloody battles that were fought up and down the Korean Peninsula. Partly drawn from officlal records, operations journals, and histories, it is based largely on the compelling personal narratives of the small-unit commanders and their troops. Unlike any other work on the Korean War, it provides a clear panoramic view, sharp insight into the successes and failures of U.S. forces, and a riveting account of the fierce clashes between U.N. troops and the North Korean and Chinese communist invaders"--Container

The Battle of Anzio was among the most bloody of the World War II conflicts. T.R. Fehrenbach's accurate account stunningly depicts the reality of the Allied forces' fight for survival on an Italian beach as they stormed what Winston Churchill called the soft underbelly of the Axis powers.

This is a true and dramatic account of the battle from the perspective of a soldier and military historian, told with pride, compassion and spirit. T.R. Fehrenbach's account of war needs no embellishing and brings you into the thick of the action
