In 1952, overriding political objectives forced U.N. forces to abandon the pursuit of decisive victory in Korea.

Describes the Marinesí steep and deadly learning curve and includes reports on major battles of the period, such as Bunker Hill and The Hook. The authorís use of archival sources blended with first-person oral accounts places the reader on the battle line. Maps and photos.
