Part One Of Two Parts

This brilliant examination of America's first limited war breathes fresh air on a conflict in need of re-examination.

Toland comes up with fascinating revelations. . .Mao's prediction of the date and place of MacArthur's Inchon landing, the true nature of Mao's relationship with Stalin, Russia's indifference to the war after planning the initial attack, Mao's leadership of the Chinese volunteers and the sorry story of both sides' treatment of POWs.
