Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One June 25, 1950, a massive surprise North Korean invasion sent Allied forces reeling back to a last-ditch defensive perimeter around the far-southern port city Pusan.

Book News Annotation:

In June 1950, when Kim Il Sung's Russian-built T-34 tanks rolled southward across the 38th Parallel, the precarious balance of world power was suddenly tilted. Although technically disadvantaged, China's army mounted a campaign of deception and misinformation that enabled them to surprise and repulse allied forces. Roe was an intelligence officer serving with the 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines during the Korean War. His analysis of events leading up to the massive Chinese offensive is informed by experience as well as research. The author is now semi-retired from a career in real estate.
