Once he landed, Lieutenant No found that his mother had escaped to the South two years earlier, and they were soon reunited. At his request, No came to the United States and became a U.S. citizen.

Black Tuesday Over Namsi - B-29s vs MiGs - the Forgotten Air Battle of the Korean War, 23 October 1951 McGill, Earl J. Lt. Col. UASF (ret.) Helion & Co 9781907677212 BRAND NEW Hardcover in Dust Jacket - 224pp - Photos - Maps - Documents - An hour and a half before sunup, nine B-29s of the 307th Bombardment Wing lifted off from Kadena Air Force Base, Okinawa on a bombing mission against Namsi, a North Korean airfield under construction in the heart of MiG Alley. Five and a half hours later they would engage in an air battle that would forever change the conduct of strategic aerial bombardment. Six of the nine would not return, the highest percentage of United States bombers ever lost on a major mission. Astonishingly, virtually nothing has been published about this event. Official Air Force historical records mention it only in passing and literature of the period too often emphasizes the gung-ho aspect than the grim reality of war. Black Tuesday Over Namsi chronicles the calamitous B-29 daylight-bombing mission flown by the 307th Bombardment Wing on 23 October 1951 against Namsi Airfield. What many experts consider the epic air battle of the Korean War and perhaps the greatest jet engagement in the history of aerial warfare has largely become another forgotten battle in a forgotten war. Here, Lt. Col McGill presents the facts and circumstances of the mission from first briefing to final landing. Publisher List Price= $49.95 $43.95

Combat Over Korea Philip Chinnery Pen and Sword Books 9781848844773 BRAND NEW Hardcover with Dust Jacket (Protected in New Brodart Jacket Cover) - 208pp - Photos - Combat Over Korea offers a superb selection of thrilling accounts by Allied airmen of their experiences. These include air combat between fighters, a B29 Superfortress bomber ditching in the sea, C-54 cargo plane being attacked by North Korean fighters. We read of the exploits of the 21 Troop Carrier Squadron (The Kyushu Gipsies) who flew into impossibly short strips to rescue thousands of wounded soldiers – they received the Presidential Citation for their feat. Others tell of their hair-raising escapades after being shot down. While a number miraculously avoided capture (often due to the skill of fellow pilots), many were less lucky. Their treatment in captivity was often brutal. Very few escaped but 1st Lieutenant Melvin Shadduck did and he tells his story here, as do others who have remarkable experiences to describe. While it was not until 1955 that the last POWs were released, the Author concludes that there is every possibility that a number were denied freedom forever. Publisher List Price= $39.95 $34.95

I Will Shoot Them from My Loving Heart - Memoir of a South Korean Officer in the Korean War Hurh, Won Moo McFarland Publishing 9780786465033 BRAND NEW Full-Sized Laminated Softcover - 196pp - 18 photos, 1 map, appendix, bibliography, index - In the spring of 1950, 17-year-old South Korean high school senior Won Moo Hurh dreamed of studying law at Seoul National University after graduation. His life changed irrevocably on June 25 when North Korean forces invaded his homeland. After less than three months of training, Hurh was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army of the Republic of Korea and sent to the front, where the casualty rate for such junior officers could reach 60 percent. In this exceptional memoir, Hurh provides not only a descriptive chronicle of his wartime exploits, but also a social psychological exploration on the absurdity of war in general. Hurh’s vivid remembrances bring to life the "forgotten" Korean War from the viewpoint of a Korean soldier, a perspective rarely available in English until now. Publisher List Price= $35 $31.95

Korean Battle Chronology - Unit-by-Unit United States Casualty Figures and Medal of Honor Citations Lentz, Robert J. McFarland Publishing 9780786446759 BRAND NEW Full-Sized Laminated Softcover - 207pp - Tables - Biblio - Index - On June 28, 1950, five U.S. airmen died when their aircraft were shot down over Korea. They became the first U.S. casualties in a war that started three days earlier, when the North Korean People’s Army crossed the 38th parallel and invaded the Republic of South Korea. The losses of U.S. military personnel that began with those five airmen would continue for 37 months and would ultimately total 33,985 American fatalities and more than 100,000 other American casualties. This is a history of U.S. involvement in the Korean War as told through those casualties--by the dates they occurred, their causes, their numbers and the units in which they served--and through all Medal of Honor citations (given in full).

MiG-29 Flight Manual Wise, Alan R. Schiffer Military Books 0764313894 BRAND NEW Oversized Softcover - 128pp - The MiG-29 Fulcrum is acknowledged as the finest lightweight, multi-role fighter ever produced in Russia. It was designed to operate under wartime conditions and fight head-to-head with Western combat aircraft such as the U.S. F-16 Falcon, F/A-18 Hornet, French Mirage 2000, Rafale, and Swedish JAS-39 Grippen. Roughly the size of the F/A-18 Hornet, the Mach 2.3 capable Fulcrum has also demonstrated many extraordinary capabilities and set several world records, including topping the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird in altitude. Presently in service with the Russian Air Force, as well as the air forces of Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, India, Germany, Yugoslavia, Serbia, Iraq, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Syria, Poland, Malaysia, Hungary, and Yemen, the MiG-29 has proved to be a rugged and capable fighter that will continue to be a factor in future conflicts, both as ally or foe. It is with this in mind that MiG-29 Flight Manual: Unclassified was created - to provide a rare and unprecedented glimpse inside a top Russian aircraft. Using information that only a few years ago was highly classified, this translated text presents an extraordinary look at the capabilities and complexities of one of the very best fighters of the current age - Overseas Shipping on this via Airmail Only!

Flown by four air forces in support of the United Nations, the F-51 Mustang dropped more napalm and fired more rockets than any other aircraft during that conflict - and in the process suffered the highest number of losses. Told is the story of the bravery of the fighter-bomber pilots in the serious air-to-mud war against horrendous anti-aircraft fire, and also the first swirling air battles against the vaunted MiG-15 - Overseas Shipping on this via Airmail Only!

North of the DMZ : Essays on Daily Life in North Korea Lankov, Andrei McFarland Publishing 0786428392 BRAND NEW Laminated Softcover - 358pp - The Kim dynasty has ruled North Korea for over 60 years. Most of that period has found the country suffering under mature Stalinism characterized by manipulation, brutality and tight social control. Nevertheless, some citizens of Kim Jong Il’s regime manage to transcend his tyranny in their daily existence. This book describes that difficult but determined existence and the world that the North Koreans have created for themselves in the face of oppression. Many features of this world are unique and even bizarre. But they have been created by the citizens to reflect their own ideas and values, in sharp contrast to the world forced upon them by a totalitarian system. Opening chapters introduce the political system and the extent to which it permeates citizens’ daily lives, from the personal status badges they wear to the nationalized distribution of the food they eat. Chapters discussing the schools, the economic system, and family life dispel the myth of the workers’ paradise that North Korea attempts to perpetuate. In these chapters the intricacies of daily life in a totalitarian dictatorship are seen through the eyes of defectors whose anecdotes constitute an important portion of the material. The closing chapter treats at length the significant changes that have taken place in North Korea over the last decade, concluding that these changes will lead to the quiet but inevitable death of North Korean Stalinism.

Ready to Fire : Memoir of an American Artilleryman in the Korean War Holmsten, Richard B. McFarland Publishing 0786416130 BRAND NEW Laminated Full-Size Softcover - 220pp - photos, index - Once North Korean forces crossed the 38th parallel in 1950, the lives of many Americans half the globe away, were disrupted. President Truman authorized a call up of enlisted, inactive reservists--like Richard B. Holmsten, an about to be married 20-year-old with a bright future. Replacements were needed for artillerymen killed during one disastrous day in August 1950. He was assigned to the Headquarters Battery of the 8th Field Artillery Battalion of the 25th Infantry Division. This memoir begins with Holmsten’s transition from civilian to newlywed soldier. It covers training at Fort Lewis (Washington state), the voyage across the Pacific, and the readying of a Fire Direction Control Center for 105 Howitzers near Kaesong. It covers the early days of the conflict as the unit moved during the flux of battle, the problems faced as the unit retreated south of Seoul, and the efforts put forth as the unit struck north again. The major campaign covered concerns the crossing of the Han River in March 1951. The crossing was a massive but fast operation, and Holmsten’s unit was responsible for firing 70,000 rounds of artillery against enemy forces. The daily happenings, hopes and fears of soldier life are explored, including the often-contentious relationship of enlisted reserve versus regular army. It concludes with the author’s rotation back to civilian life. Photographs accompany the text $41.95

McFarland Publishing 9780786429301 BRAND NEW Laminated Oversized Softcover - photos, notes, bibliography, index - 260pp - From rubber landing boats to picket boats to minesweepers, smaller support vessels did much of the work of the Korean War, and endured many of the dangers and hardships. Rarely mentioned in histories of the war, they served functions essential to keeping the United States Navy and the United Nations partners in active duty. This volume delivers an overview of the various kinds of vessels involved, the difficulties of mobilizing the aging American fleet at a time when a significant downsizing had been expected, and the design and specification considerations of the support vessels needed for the new war effort. It lists the individual support vessels and details the degree of their involvement, often providing photographs as well as comments from men who served aboard the ships Publisher List Price= $39.95 $35.25

The early history covers the entire F-80 era, including the first jet aerobatic team, and the introduction of the legendary F-86 Sabre in 1949. From daily squadron diaries, the coverage on Korea begins with the move to Korea in November 1950, through the first operations in December, including a first person account of LtCol Bruce Hinton's first MiG kill. Dozens of MiG kill reports are included in the various chapters, with another first person account of Capt Jim Jabara's fifth and sixth kills, making him the first jet ace in history.

THE HILL WARS OF THE KOREAN CONFLICT : A DICTIONARY OF HILLS, OUTPOSTS, AND OTHER SITES OF MILITARY ACTION Edwards, Paul M. McFarland Publishing 0786420987 BRAND NEW Oversized Laminated Softcover - 267pp - Index - Photos - Maps - In many respects, all wars are alike. All soldiers compete for position and mobility; all forces struggle for the larger territory, the greater power. Yet each war has as well its distinguishing characteristics--its unique features, its most-remembered events, its particular frustrations that haunt the dreams of its veterans. In Korea, it was the hills. The Korean hills offered observation, artillery, and mortar advantage to whichever country controlled them. On these hills, thousands of soldiers fought decisive battles for a few feet of land or for higher elevation. This reference work identifies more than 400 hills, outposts, complexes and phase lines that were key components of the Korean War, allowing researchers to relate individual battles to the larger narrative of the war. Each entry details major operations fought in the area, including the units involved, the area’s strategic value in the overall war, the type of combat, and the munitions involved. Geographic features known by both numbers and names are cross-referenced for ease of access. Publisher List Price= $49.95 $44.95

Three Days in the Hermit Kingdom - An American Visits North Korea Burdick, Eddie McFarland Publishing 9780786448982 BRAND NEW Full-Sized Laminated Softcover - 333pp - To most of the world, North Korea remains a secretive and mysterious nation, one that has tightly controlled the outflow of information in order to groom its public image. This book chronicles a rare, regime-sanctioned excursion by a North American into the heart of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. What is revealed is often what’s expected, such as the adoration of leaders, excursions to national monuments, and exposure to propaganda relating to self-sufficiency. But as a Korean speaker, the author gathered a lot more information than the scripted English narration provided by his Korean guides. Behind the propaganda of the Communist regime, the authentic, eye-opening North Korea is revealed Publisher List Price= $39.95 $36.95

WAR IN KOREA: THE REPORT OF A WOMAN COMBAT CORRESPONDENT Higgins, Marguerite Doubleday NY 1951 1st Edition - GOOD Condition Hardcover in Scarce Dust Jacket (chipped) with $2.75 price showing - Dust Jacket Protected in New Brodart Jacket Cover - 223pp - Lots of Full-Page War-Time Photos - Overall brown toning to pages - In 1942 Higgins was hired by the New York Tribune and wanted to report the war in Europe but it was not until 1945 that she started reporting the war from France and later in Germany. This included accompanying Allied troops when they entered the Nazi extermination camps at Dachau and Buchenwald. After the war she covered the Nuremberg War Trials. At the start of the Korean War, she reported the the fall of Seoul, to North Korean forces. The Tribune ordered her to return to Tokyo, but she refused to go and was eventually able to persuade General MacArthur to allow her to continue her front-line reporting after women had been banned from the front. She was with the Marines during the Inchon Landing. In 1951, War in Korea, became a best-seller. That year she won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting and was voted Woman of the Year by the Associated Press. She was buried at Arlington after contracting a fatal disease while covering the war in Vietnam. $15.00
WATCHING M*A*S*H, WATCHING AMERICA : A SOCIAL HISTORY OF THE 1972-1983 TELEVISION SERIES Wittebols, James H. McFarland Publishing 0786417013 BRAND NEW Laminated Full-Size Softcover - 272pp - Notes - Index - It has been said that M*A*S*H was a show set in the 1950s which reflected the shifting values of the 1970s and early 1980s. Hawkeye Pierce, Radar O’Reilly, Trapper John McIntyre, Sherman Potter, Margaret (Hot Lips) Houlihan, B.J. Hunnicutt, Frank Burns, Charles Emerson Winchester, Max Klinger--these and the many other characters who populated the MASH 4077 used the Korean War as a backdrop to comment on many of the social issues of their day. Using a unique blend of comedy and drama, the show’s first three seasons (1972-1975) focused on the anti-Vietnam War sentiment that consumed much of America. As Vietnam ended, M*A*S*H moved on to concentrate on other contemporary issues--the women’s movement, the rise of the religious right in American politics, the new narcissism that marked the early 1980s, the heightened awareness of underage or excessive alcohol use, and the increased emphasis on family in American life. How the series presented these issues and its success in doing so are the subjects of this critical study. An episode listing--brief plot outline, casts and credits, air dates, and titles--is also provided. $49.95

WHAT'S A COMMIE EVER DONE TO BLACK PEOPLE? : A KOREAN WAR MEMOIR OF FIGHTING IN THE U.S. ARMY'S LAST ALL NEGRO UNIT Morrow, Curtis James McFarland Publishing 0786403330 BRAND NEW Laminated Full-Size Softcover - On March 27, 1950, the author turned 17; ten days later he enlisted in the U.S. Army. During his training in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, he first learned of the “police action” in Korea, and like many others he volunteered for duty there. His biggest fear was that the action would be over by the time he arrived in Korea. Private Morrow was assigned as a rifleman in the 24th Infantry Regiment Combat Team, one of the most outstanding units in Korea and the last all black army unit; he served with distinction until he was wounded. After a short stint in Pusan, he became a paratrooper and rigger in the 8081st Airborne and Resupplying Company stationed in southern Japan. Throughout his time in the service, Private Morrow had to face the institutional racism of the U.S. Army where black soldiers consistently served longer and performed more dangerous duties than white soldiers. The effects of this on the 18-year-old private were longterm—and are described here Publisher List Price= $29.95 $26.95
