A book; Inchón 1950, The last great amphibious assault
Inchón 1950, Campaign 162, Gordon L Rottman, Osprey publishing
An often forgotten war is the one on the Korean peninsula raging between 1950 to 1953. The amphibious operations during this time are even more forgotten although they had a great impact on the outcome of the war. The Inch'on landing in 1950 was intended to break the situation and regain the initiative for the UN troops. By landing a major force behind enemy lines the tide turned and enabled the UN forces under General MacArthurs command to push the North Koreans away from Seoul. This is a rather thin book focusing mainly on the landing and the immediate actions before it. You who have previous experience of Ospreys Campaign books know what to expect.
