Disaster in Korea tells the story of General MacArthur's November 1950 attack to the Yalu River, an attack that was repulsed by 200,000 Chinese "volunteer" infantry. "The research is meticulous, the narrative enlightening, and the lessons profound. Appleman knows the war intimately, and he conveys it with authority. . . . balanced, candid, and engrossing."—Union News Sunday Republican "Appleman's full, authoritative Disaster thus fills a vital gap in the history of American arms and the Korean War. It is a candid and compelling story, chock full of lessons for battlefield commanders."—Parameters
