Description: In 1952, overriding American political objectives dictated that the tactics of UN forces in Korea shift from those of maneuver to those of holding on to territory recently gained at great human cost. In western Korea, along "main lines of resistance", men of the 1st Marine Division patrolled from lonely outposts. Thus began "the outpost war", a forgotten period of "the forgotten war" -- but one during which 7800 marines lost became casualties

Lee Ballenger's The Outpost War tells the story of the division's move to the Jamestown Line in western Korea where the assault -- trained and -- equipped troops must dig in and learn to fight an unusual defensive war. It describes their steep, deadly learning curve and reports on major battles of the period, including Bunker Hill and The Hook, while including the trials and tribulations of individuals who were there. The author's use of official archival sources blended with oral accounts places the reader in the battle line with the marines. Nearly all the material in The Outpost War has never been published before.
