170 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w photographs, maps. "The Battle of the Hook was probably the last full-scale infantry battle, fought on traditional lines, that the world will ever see. It was also a classic set-piece example of a battalion in defence and was, in terms of steel, the biggest battle of the Korean War, and the most concentrated confrontation of artillery support and engineering effort since the First World War. In it the Black Watch and the Duke of Wellington's Regiment defeated and completely routed a fanatical Chinese army who attacked them over a period of some fifteen days with incredible ferocity. The Chinese losses were so great that they never attempted such assaults again. It was a turning point of the Korean War and a triumph of British arms." Previous owner's small name stamp on front endpapers, one page with tiny corner crease, light wrinkle at top of spine, tiny bump to bottom front corner. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor browning on inside.
