Format: Paperback
COL Heinl's teatment of the landing at Inchon is thorough and informative. It is a story of a highly complex operation that was run on a shoestring and high expectations of failure. He gives you a feeling of you are there at the planning sessions, and as the ships lurch from Japan to Korea in a typhoon. You are there when the LSTs come into the beaches, which have the second laargest tidal ranges in the world, and dry out when the tide recedes. Your are there when the Marines reach the seawall and have to scale it using ladders.
There were casualties at Inchon but I get the feeling that if there had been a more determined enemy resistance, the outcome of the operation might have been different.
This book is a must for an understanding of the first months of America's involvement in the Korean War. It should be on everyone's shelf as it is of great value to understanding why we are still in Korea fifty years after the invasion at Inchon.
