Full Description:

This remarkable collection of works by some of the world's most distinguished naval historians draws on many formerly classified sources to shed new light on the U.S. Navy's role in the three-year struggle to preserve the freedom of the Republic of Korea.

As a whole, the book documents how the Navy's domination of the seas around Korea enabled allied forces to project combat power ashore the length and breadth of the Korean peninsula. U.S. and allied naval power also discouraged China and the Soviet Union from launching other military adventures in the Far East. This book is published in cooperation with the Naval Historical Foundation.

Edward J. Marolda is the senior historian and chief of the Histories and Archives Division at the Naval Historical Center in Washington, DC.  He is also the coauthor of Shield and Sword.

Dr. Marolda is the senior historian of the Naval Historical Center. He has written or cowritten a number of books on the history of the U.S. Navy in the 20th century, including By Sea, Air, and Land: An Illustrated History of the U.S. Navy and the War in Southeast Asia
