The Forgotten War: America in Korea, 1950-1953 - Clay Blair Jr. This book is an extremely in depth look at the first year of the Korean War. The events leading to Korean War are also lightly covered in the first couple chapters of the book, while the war's end is described in only a few pages. It does an amazing job at covering the first year of the war however, with nearly every American political decision, hypothetical military situation, and actual military action no matter the scale being covered with the utmost detail. I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in Korean, American, Cold War, or military history.
