Book Review: This Kind of War

 
 
Now, I can find Korea on the map, but not much more. And here we have a book about the Korean War without any maps —or photos or graphic illustrations—whatsoever (in the Kindle version anyway), which made understanding the narrative of the battles difficult.  Sometimes Fehrenbach gets lost in the “fog of war” as he writes quite a bit about foxhole-level fighting. While important, it distracted from getting the big picture of the war.  Some of the author’s opinions were insightful and some left me scratching my head…again to the detriment of understanding history.
