“….an excellent narrative of the war and analysis of the literature…”
The Journal of Military History, April 2008
Praise for Allan R. Millett's The War for Korea, 1945-1950: A House Burning
"A superb, path-breaking, and highly revealing narrative of the Cold War's first major 'hot war.'"
Chen Jian, author of Road to the Korean War
"Millett is one of the very best military historians writing today and his book far surpasses any other in describing and analyzing the military dimensions of events leading up to North Korea's attack on South Korea in June 1950."
William Stueck, author of The Korean War in World History
Authoritative and compelling....A must-read for policymakers and all informed citizens interested in the fate of the Korean peninsula.
James T. Laney, former U.S. ambassador to the Republic of Korea and coauthor of U.S. Foreign Policy toward North Korea: Next Steps
