Abstract:

I have treated the campaign strategically as the great fulcrum of the Korean War, diplomatically as the offensive that nearly left America to pursue the war alone, and revolutionarily as the campaign that made limited war a necessity; and, naturally, I have followed the course of the fortnight over every mile of the advance from Inchon to the breakout from Seoul, so that I have tried at least to indicate every dimension of this vital part of a war which, for some strange, reason, is already passing into military oblivion. - Introduction.
