2 Godfrey, F.A., Major. THE HISTORY OF THE SUFFOLK REGIMENT 1946-1959.
Leo Cooper, London, (1988), Ist edition. 
276 pp, large 8vo (9 3/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos, maps. "...covers the Regiment in action in Palestine, India, Malaya, Trieste and Cyprus, as well as when soldiering in Egypt, Greece, BAOR and at home. A complete chapter is devoted to the activities of the Suffolk and Cambridgeshire Territorial battalions...Each chapter describes a tour of duty of one battalion in a particular posting and is divided into two parts: the first paints a general picture of the role of the battalion showing why it was there and what it was like to be there with some mention of events of note. The second part of the chapter contains a detailed chonological account of the experiences of the battalion...In Malaya the Regiment won for itself between 1949 and 1953 a reputation unequalled throughout the whole 12-year Emergency there by any other British battalion. While the chapter devoted to Malaya provides the core of the book the other chapters reveal a continous thread of devotion to duty and the author is not exaggerating when he speaks in his preface of 'a quiet, grim determination in the face of extremely hostile conditions' to do a worthwhile job as being characteristic of the Suffolk Regiment until the very end." Minor browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has small ghost sticker mark on inside of front flap, minor edge wrinkling. VG+/VG+

Bedford, (London, 1984). 
128 pp, 4to, hard cover in dust jacket. Over 200 illustrations, 75 in color. "...a full and detailed study of this war. It reveals how and why the confrontation in the Korean Peninsula was created and details the events of the war. The reader is taken behind the scenes, into the debates and personality clashes that led U.S. President Harry Truman to dismiss General Douglas MacArthur. Nor does it neglect 'the other side of the hill', for it shows why the Chinese decided to inter v e n e a n d a s sesses the methods that gave their relatively ill-equipped infantry such a devastating impact...coverage is based upon an analysis of the fighting, examining the way that the conflict developed from a fluid war of movement to a s ta ti c tr e nc h wa r fa re in which attrition and small-scale patrolling became the dominant features..."
