It's a primary account by British General Ian Hamilton when he was attached as a foreign observer to General Kuroki's 1st Army, during the Russo-Japanese War. The tactical coverage is quite detailed, and the accompanying maps and terrain sketches are surprisingly excellent!



Sounds like you would enjoy Attacks by Rommel

A detailed log of his WW1 battles, with sketches and the works. That guy was great out of the breech.

Back on topic with a Cold War uchrony: Larry Bond's "Red Phoenix".

1986: North Korea takes advantage of a US pull-out from South Korea to inva... "liberate" the South and reunify them under the Great Leader's rule.
It's close to Clancy's style, but a bit better ...

I think I read it some time ago, and found it somewhat biased.

can you elaborate on that ? I found it to be very well written and not biased at all. OFC it might be tough for westener to grasp what was going on back then but Mrs. Merridale has a solid enough background imo.
