Library Journal Review

$22.95. hist An expert on China and Korea, Spurr has written an account of the Korean War from the Communist viewpoint. His unique opportunity to use Chinese and North Korean archives and his interviews with many participants, from privates to generals, give the work a reality not found in comparable books. Like the United States, China was a reluctant participant in the Korean War: just recovering from an eight-year war against the Japanese and a brutal civil war, it faced an economy in ruins and an army in need of rest and re-equipping. Spurr offers an invaluable explanation of why China fought in Korea and why it fought as it did. Essential. Stanley Itkin, Hillside P.L., New Hyde Park, N.Y. (c) Copyright 2010.
