Toland lets both the events and the participants speak for themselves, employing scrupulous archival research and interviews as the bases for the drama and accuracy of his writing. In Mortal Combat reveals Maos prediction of the date and place of MacArthurs Inchon landing, Russias indifference to the war, Maos secret leadership of the North Korean military, and the true nature of both sides treatment and repatriation of POWs.In addition to being the first Westerner to gain access to Chinese records and combatants, Toland interviewed numerous North and South Korean veterans and over two hundred members of the American military, many of whom had never been approached before. The result is a signal work of compelling readability and lasting importance.
