Combat Actions in Korea; Infantry, Artillery, Armor. Russell A. Gugeler.
Washington, DC: Combat Forces Press, 1954. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Hardcover. xi, [1], 260 pages. Maps. Notes. Legend to Symbols on Maps. Index. Foreword by Major General Orlando Ward. Name in ink inside front cover. DJ worn, soiled, torn and chipped. Published in 1954, the year following the close of the Korean War, this book describes combat actions of small Army units, squads and platoons, companies and batteries. 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. Squad or platoon members know only what they can see and hear.
