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. Korean & Amer. defenders were pushed back to a perimeter around the southern Korean city of Pusan. This defense bought time for Gen. MacArthur’s bold counterstroke, the Inchon Landing, & the race for the Yalu River, the northern border of N. Korea. But the high command did not know that forces of Red China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) had already begun to cross the Yalu & infiltrate south in large numbers to occupy positions on the allied routes of advance. This book examines what brought the Chinese into the War & how the PLA managed to achieve seemingly total surprise. Illus.
