The start is a bit odd, with a very pro-UN stand, but the book soon gets into the details. And details there are! lots of small unit action descriptions, good overview of the various phases of the conflict and then the static defense lines.

Complete review of all ground, air and naval actions, to the platoon and gunboat level. Details single and air wing plane actions, with good technical details and descriptions.

Excellent source book.
