HOLOCAUST, GENOCIDE, AND MEMORY STUDIES

Re: Reilly on Weintraub, 'A Christmas Far from Home: An Epic Tale of Courage and Survival during the Korean War'

If this volume has neglected the period and phase of US front movement into positions of North Korea somewhere south of the Chinese border with NK and the hazards arising from McArthur's risks, approaching the Chinese border, then the volume may have done a large disservice to telling the story and history to US failure in North Korea; thus ended in the stalemate still existing to this time.
