Detailed accuracy 1947 through 1951 Rap Up beyond
Absolutely fantastic book, worth full price, not a short read it takes time but worth every minute. I thought I had a good grasp of those post WW II years but I learned something new in each chapter and discovered how I and others had been totally misinformed about how the Nationalist lost China. This book captures and holds the reader's attention as it combines vivid detailed combat information together with all the political and command structure problems that plagued the operational forces. I missed the big war but graduated from Navy flight training May 1950 a month before the North Koreans invaded the south. I flew Corsairs in Korea and will add one thing not covered and that is Chinese anti aircraft fire was a lot more concentrated and deadly by 1952.
