FIGHTING ON THE BRINK: DEFENSE OF THE PUSAN PERIMETER, by Brigadier General Uzal W. Ent (ret.), Turner Publishing Company, 431 pages, $29.95.

Korean War veteran Ent uses the recollections and experiences of more than 500 servicemen who took part in the Korean War, the official Army and Marine histories, command records, and writings from books, magazines, and newspapers of the time to create a definitive book on the first three months of the conflict. A brief historic sketch of post-World War II North and South Korea, recently discovered documents, and battlefield maps combine to present an important addition to the history of the Korean War.
