History of the Korean War. An amazing story that shows how the American involvement predicted how the US would perform in Viet Nam.

A stupendous book about a massive misadventure of the US in a small country in Southeast Asia. The author lays bare the inner workings and prejudices that went into the decisions made by the main parties: the North and South Vietnamese and their supporters the Chinese and Soviet Union, and the Americans and their allies who contributed personnel and material. Given the implacable will of the North Vietnamese communist party to take over the South and unify the country under communist rule, it seemed to the Americans that they had no choice but to intervene militarily; but the South Vietnamese politics and society were not themselves united or above selfish interests, and ultimately the Americans, out of squeamishness or strategic big-power considerations, never committed enough fire power to finish off the North. However the Americans seem not to have learnt from the experience; the scenes of their hasty withdrawal when the Northern forces were within earshot in Saigon, are reminiscent of their equally chaotic and unedifying flight from an embattled Afghanistan in this century. The author shows his depth and breadth of experience and his knowledge of the subject; his almost day-by-day account is unforgettable and compelling.… (lisätietoja)

A very good one volume account of both the diplomatic efforts and military regarding Britain’s successful response to the Argentinian invasion of 1982. Each theatre of war, as well as the political dimension is addressed individually, in detail, and given the time of writing, in a balanced way. as with all of Max Hastings books, this one was as readable as ever.

I’m very good, engrossing and well paste, the narrative of one of the most unpleasant German units in World War II. The depiction of various war crimes is really quite disturbing. The attitude of German soldiers towards this, even more so. The eventual fate of the death Reich Helps on its way by the French resistance is an interesting but macabre story.
