Passing the test : combat in Korea, April-June 1951( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For U.S. and UN soldiers fighting in the Korean War, the spring of 1951 was brutal. The troops faced a tough and determined foe under challenging conditions. The Chinese Spring Offensive of 1951 exemplified the hardships of the war as the UN forces struggled with the Chinese troops over Line Kansas, a phase line north of the 38th parallel, in a conflict that led to the war's final stalemate. This book looks closely at the fierce fighting of the Soring Offensive and analyzes U.S. and UN strategies and operations, exploring the combat from the perspectives of platoons, squads, and the men themselves. --from Publisher description

8 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here for the first time in English, is an illuminating German perspective on the decisive Blitzkrieg campaign. The account ... provides the definitive explanation for German's startling success and the equally surprising military collapse of France and Britain on the European continent in 1940. In a little over a month, Germany defeated the Allies in battle, a task that had not been achieved in four years of brutal fighting during World War I ... This study explodes many of the myths concerning German blitzkrieg warfare and the planning for the 1940 campaign"--Jacket

Striking back : combat in Korea, March-April 1951 by Roger Cirillo( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the harsh Korean winter of 1951 ended, the U.N. forces faced a critical period in the war. Strategic planners in Washington and ground commanders in Korea were unprepared and ill equipped for the nature of the combat and it was the individual soldiers fighting these battles who ultimately paid the price. Striking Back: Combat in Korea, March-April 1951, the second installment of Army colonel William T. Bowers's three-volume series, describes the ground level combat from the perspectives of the battalion, company, platoon, squad and individual soldiers. March 1951 ushered in a new strategy as U.N. forces shifted from defense to offense. These particularly savage military operations ranged from rapid advances and withdrawls to airborne and river crossing operations reminiscent of those employed in World War II. The brutal nature and strategic significance of these campaigns had profound effects on not only the combatants themselves
