A brilliantly researched and written book.

Absolutely superb and graphic account of the British 29th Brigade during the Korean war, culminating in the holding actions along the Imjin river. I've had it 3 days and haven't been able to put it down, one of the most compelling military history books I've ever read.
Personal accounts cross referenced with official sources and Regimental war diaries, maps for every chapter and extensive use of authors notes throughout the book make this a must read for anyone who like me suddenly realised how little they knew about this conflict.
I wouldn't hesitate recommending this book to anybody and have no hesitation in giving it five stars.
