COMBAT ACTIONS IN KOREA (Front)

Published by Paul D Carrier
Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 70-603408
ISBN:
First Printed 1954–CMH Pub 30-2

This book is a collection of accounts describing the combat action of small Army units–squads and platoons, companies and
batteries. These are the units that engage in combat, suffer the casualties, and make up the fighting strength of the battalions,
regiments, divisions, corps, and finally, of the field army. Combat is a very personal business to members of such a small
unit. Concerned with the fearful and consuming tasks of fighting and living, these men cannot think of war in terms of the Big
Picture as it is represented on the situation maps at corps or army headquarters. Members of a squad or platoon know only what they can see and hear of combat. They know and understand the earth for which they fight, the advantage of holding the high ground, the protection of the trench or hole. These men can distinguish the rounds of enemy weapons from those
of their own; they know the satisfying sound of friendly artillery shells passing overhead and of friendly planes diving at an objective. They know the excitement of combat, the feeling of exhilaration and of despair, the feeling of massed power, and of overwhelming loneliness.
