The Imjin and Kapyong Battles, Korea, 1951
summary

The actions of the British 29th Brigade in defending the Imjin River line—in particular the sacrifice of the "Glorious Glosters"—and the hilltop fights of Australian and Canadian battalions in the Kapyong Valley have achieved greater renown in those nations than any other military action since World War II. This book is the first to compare in any depth what happened and why. Using official and unofficial source material ranging from personal interviews to war diaries, this study seeks to disentangle the mythology surrounding both battles and explain why events unfolded as they did. Based on thorough familiarity with all available sources, many not previously utilized, it sheds new light on fighting "the forgotten war."
