Going to China when the war ends, he and his teacher Gao, fall in love with the same woman, so Gene decides to come back to America.

Spurr focuses on the crucial six-month period from August, 1950, when China first deliberated intervention, through her first, unexpected strike in October, to her standstill at the end of January, 1951. We get a grounding in the major events that shaped Chinese and Korean history, and a better understanding of both countries' troubled relations with Soviet and Japanese neighbors. In scenes set in Korea, Manchuria, New York, and Peking we see, as never before: the military leaders of China debatng on intervention in Korea versus an attack on Taiwan; front-line Chinese soldiers who cross into North Korea and soon learn that the snowmen they see decorating the winter fields are the frozen corpses of fellow soldiers and fleeing refugees; and, in an acid-etched portrait, the 70-year-old UN Supreme Commander Douglas MacArthur, growing baffled and desperate as he fights not only a seesawing war, but the strictures of President Truman against "total victory.

Hamden, CT: Archon Books. Good in Good dust jacket. 1969. Hard Cover. 171 pages, maps, cloth, DJ, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the dust jacket: "This book reviews the progress of the war as it was fought, but also places it in the context of contemporary international politics and the domestic affairs of the participants - the Cold War in Europe and the fate of the Macarthur plan and its author are given due emphasis."

From the dj, 'This is a book of questions - many questions - none of which has a simple clear-cut answer, but all of which must be addressed. For the final question is asked of all of us - what do the American people do about a lone soldier who was deserted by the Army, who was singled out to carry the blame for a war that was not won, that has never really ended, that the Army wants forgotten? ., Yankee, 1987, New York: Newmarket Press,. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 1988. First Edition. Hard Cover. 1557040087 . 335 pages, 8 plates, 5 maps, cloth, dj, very good. 1st edition, From Library Journal: 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. ., Newmarket Press, 1988
