Dragon Strikes: China & the Korean War: June-December 1950
Patrick C. Roe (au). On June 25, 1950, when Kim Il Sung’s tanks rolled southward across the 38th parallel, the precarious balance of world power was suddenly & drastically tilted. S.

MacArthur’s bold counterstroke, the Inchon Landing, & the race for the Yalu River, the northern border of N. Korea.

This book examines what brought the Chinese into the War & how the PLA managed to achieve seemingly total surprise. Illus.
