    Good uniform guide and lots of black and white photos of the Korean War 1950 53 I ve read quite a bit about the air war and ground war Intrigued me enough to readabout the conflict Don t know what type of figures or rules I d use to wargame Korea There s less interest to wargame the ground war in Korea than the air war Air war games were fun Don t have a clue how the ground war would go Probably would have to write my own rules Rather redo 28mm Vietnam than mess around with Korea Good uniform guide and lots of black and white photos of the Korean War 1950 53 I ve read quite a bit about the air war and ground war Intrigued me enough to readabout the conflict Don t know what type of figures or rules I d use to wargame Korea There s less interest to wargame the ground war in Korea than the air war Air war games were fun Don t have a clue how the ground war would go Probably would have to write my own rules Rather redo 28mm Vietnam than mess around with Korea But I don t mind havereference materials regarding the conflictBlake

    I m an army brat and my father was in from the late 1930s to the mid 70s, including direct participation in three full scale foreign wars But the one he always seemed to have the strongest memories of was Korea, where having been in the occupation army in Japan he was apparently the first medical officer on the beach in September 1950, waiting for the evac and hospital units to catch up with him Technically, he wasn t a combatant, but as the author makes clear that was just the theory I m an army brat and my father was in from the late 1930s to the mid 70s, including direct participation in three full scale foreign wars But the one he always seemed to have the strongest memories of was Korea, where having been in the occupation army in Japan he was apparently the first medical officer on the beach in September 1950, waiting for the evac and hospital units to catch up with him Technically, he wasn t a combatant, but as the author makes clear that was just the theory and most people with a red cross on their helmets also wore an M1911 on their hip.The invasion of South Korea by the north was sudden and unexpected it probably shouldn t have been , and the reaction of the United Nations was quick and pointed Four months after the invasion, UN troops had pushed the North Korean Army back nearly to its border with China and it looked like Korean reunification was about to take place Then China got involved in defense of its North Korean client and it was a whole new war which, technically, was put on pause but has never ended Thomas does an excellent job of laying all this out, from both the Northern and the Southern perspectives, and making sure the other UN contingents are covered, and not just the much larger U.S force There s a tendency in this country to ignore the Canadians, British, French, Thai, Australian, and other units that participated Because of the terrain and regardless of the original high hopes that the U.S Air Force could just wrap things up with a minimum of hassle it turned into a long, dirty, bloody infantry war, fought mostly by GIs and Marines Most of the equipment on the UN side was World War II vintage, or even older, and while the North Koreans and Chinese were fierce fighters don t let anyone tell you different , their equipment was also pretty basic.Osprey s special thing, of course, is color plates of uniforms, insignia, and personal equipage, and all that is here These uniforms, the summer khakis and the pinks and greens my Dad wore, are how I thought of Army when I was a kid Korea is often referred to as the forgotten war, but it damn well shouldn t be This is a first rate overview, especially for those for whom even Vietnam is ancient history
