This reference work is the definitive chronology of the Korean War. It covers in-depth the day-by-day events, major and minor, of all combatants, including the United States, Great Britain, South Korea and other U.N. allies; North Korea; China; and the Soviet Union. Truly comprehensive, it details the war in the air, at sea and on land, with the actions of participating units, commanders and civilian leaders. Sixteen appendices provide significant statistics and supplemental information, including Medal of Honor recipients, U.S. naval vessels, units and commanders of each American military branch, carrier deployments, casualty figures and aces. There are 464 photographs accompanying the text.
