These days, for many of us, wars are reduced to their most visually enticing elements to be presented on silver platters with dinner every night. The stories are reduced to casualty statistics, and then all of these things are subsequently interpreted and judged for us as a number of `experts' weigh in on a war they've never seen with their own eyes.
Bailey's book Firing and Flying for the Field Artillery in Korea is the antidote to the mediated wars of our time. Bailey offers little interpretation and does nothing to spice up his work. What you will find in this book is nothing but the raw facts, the movements, the individuals involved and exactly what they went through. It's not, by any means, a simple read. It's technical, meticulous, and well-informed. Inside you will not find the political strife of interested parties or the drama of broken families. You will find the real movements and real actions of the real men fighting in a real war.
Bailey uses this real recount to give us the suspense of the war from the eyes of the soldiers who fought in it. And suspense there is, as the soldiers were caught in the crossfire of one of the largest wars of the century. In knowing the truth and all the facts, we can have a better understanding of what was lost and what was gained in this war, as well as having an insight into what is at stake in every war.
If you have a sincere interest in the military actions of your own government, if you want to know the non-fictional non-colored version of what war is like, or if you enjoy the study of real military strategy and tactics, this is the book for you.
