Summary: The opening months of 1951 comprised the first winter of the Korean War, and the fighting was as intense as the weather. In The Line: Combat in Korea, January-February 1951, William T. Bowers analyzes this significant period and its effects on the remainder of the war. The Line is the first of three volumes about the Korean War that focus on combat experiences at the ground level: from battalion hierarchy to the accounts of individual soldiers. Drawn from interviews conducted by Army historians immediately after combat, the books in this series offer intensive examinations of military conflic.
