Psywarriors: Psychological Warfare During the Korean War, Alan K. Abner

Burd Street Press December 2000 1572492333 / 9781572492332 Soft Cover Used - Like New 
CLEAN!! No marks. Might as well be new. Appears unread. . . . . . . . . . .. TOC: 1.) Police Action -- 2.) Trust Truman? -- 3.) Flashback -- 4.) Call to Arms -- 5.) Flying Time -- 6.) Class Action -- 7.) Georgetown University -- 8.) Secret Witness -- 9.) Propaganda -- 10.) Think Tank -- 11.) $10,000 Mig -- 12.) 'Big Mac' -- 13.) This Is the Army -- 14.) 'The Directors' -- 15.) Ed Murrow -- 16.) Miami Mission -- 17.) 'Over and Out.' . . . . . . . . . .. ''A not so secret weapon, psychological warfare (PSYWAR), was added to the United States Air Force's arsenal during the Korean War. A unit was created to design propaganda projectiles, determine targets, and suggest the means to deliver them to the enemy. It was a strategic effort aimed not at the North Korean troops in the field, but at the real enemy, the Soviet Union. This account reveals the men selected to man this force, the way they were trained, and how they performed. This 'war of words' was at times effective, occasionally frustrating, always dedicated, and even humorous when it was better to laugh than to complain. It was a battle of brains not bullets, and the victory may have been won many years later.' 'Dead Reckoning, Alan Abner's account of a tour of aerial combat in WWII with the 357th Fighter Group in England against the Nazi Luftwaffe ended in 1946. After V Day and a four-year respite from the military, the United States Air Force recalled this former fighter pilot to active duty to wage a war of words against Russia's Kremlin propagandists who were supporting their proxy forces in Korea.' 'Other Air Force reserve officers were also recalled from their civilian careers to serve their country in a 'Police Action' that to many was just another war. These psywarriors consisted of experts from the cream of the 1950 college ROTC graduates, M.A.s, M.S.s., and Ph. D.s from the fields of psychology, economics, history, and linguistics. They were possibly amateurs compared to the Russian spin doctors who had propagated the communist myths for half a century throughout the world. But the psywarriors' impact on the progress of the conflict, though unmeasurable, perhaps heralded the beginning of a modified way to fight future tyranny. Today, spin doctors are alive and well, and are active in current domestic political contests.' -- Back Cover

The Coldest Winter: America and the Korean War (Large Print Edition), David Halberstam
6 David Halberstam The Coldest Winter: America and the Korean War (Large Print Edition)
Gale Cengage September 2008 1594132844 / 9781594132841 Soft Cover Used - Very Good 
Lalrge Print Edition - No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . . . . 'For a time and war that has been relatively lost in our history - this was a terrific book. I found this to be as much a book about leadership as I did about military and social history. The author does a great job of casting the Korean War in the light of the times, political and military leadership that led us not only into the conflict but also why. He provides a great insights to Mao, Stalin, Rhee, Kim, Truman as well as many of the political supporting cast of the times. He also does a very thorough job of describing the politics of the time in the US, China, both North & South Korea and to a lesser extent Russia. There is a very enlightening assessment of the generals involved on both sides - with a well researched and described review of MacArthur, Ridgeway, Walker and others. Finally - he does a great job of describing the human components of the battles and war from the front line perspective of the soldiers and marines who fought the battles. I think this is an important book of the times.' -- Vic Galfano
