A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A fine looking copy with no markings. There is normal age-toning to the endpapers. All else is fine.

From Library Journal:

Utilizing a variety of sources, Stanley focuses on the X Corp campaign and Edward M. Almond, the controversial general chosen by Douglas MacArthur to command during the first year of the Korean War. The author likens the X Corp to the Roman Imperial Tenth Legion, remembered for its fidelity to two emperors, since America's X Corps was MacArthur's loyal instrument in World War II and Korea. This unit operated from its Inchon landing as a completely independent army with its own logistical, naval, and air support and was answerable only to MacArthur's headquarters in Tokyo. Stanton skillfully weaves the story of the autocratic and opinionated Almond, the command decisions, and the heroic and often futile actions of the troops into a well-balanced narrative that should appeal to both general and professional readers.
