Did anyone read The Coldest Winter: America in the Korean War? I picked up a copy of it to add to the reading pile.

Any other recommendations for the Korean conflict besides This Kind of War, The Last Stand of Fox Company, and Such Men as These?

I have, a very good read. I found it well written, full of info but easy to follow. There is analysis but it was reasonable not opinionated.

Some suggestions:

Allan Millet: The War for Korea: The House Burning (1945-1950); The War for Korea, They Came from the North (1950-1951). Both are published from Kansas University Press.

The Coldest Winter is not very well accepted by those with a deep interest in Korea…at least that is the impression I am getting from folks I have spoken with.

Another book…sort of a Fox Hill meets Band of Brothers, is Give Me Tomnorrow by Patrick O'Donnell. Covers one company of the 1st Marine Division through the war. Not as detailed as a Fox Hill, but decent none-the-less.

Breakout by Martin Russ is good for the Chosin campaign, and I enjoyed The Darkest Summer by Bill Sloan. Covers the Marines from Pusan to Inchon.

This would have been a perfect topic for the Gaming the Forgotten War gaming forum:
