First edition, first print hardback of THE BRITISH PART IN THE KOREAN WAR: VOLUME 2 AN HONOURABLE DISCHARGE (Official History) by Anthony Farrar-Hockley and published by HMSO Publications in 1995.

The book is in near fine condition (blue cloth boards with gold lettering to spine) with no significant wear. The dust jacket, which is not price clipped, is in very good condition, with light creasing to the top of the front and back covers and spine. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions. There is some light age spotting to top page ends (near the spine).

In this volume, General Farrar-Hockley completes the account of Britain's part in the Korean War. From January 1951, when the United Nations' forces seemed about to be overwhelmed by the Chinese Communist Forces, to the armistice in the summer of 1953, he describes the ebb and flow of fortunes on the battlefield and the parallel, sometimes consequential, political activities in the pursuit of a settlement.

The involvement of Stalin and the Soviet Union in the war is manifested from evidence unearthed in the Moscow archives. The battles on the Imjin River and the Kap'yong, in which British and Commonwealth troops defeated the Chinese Spring offensive in 1951, are described comprehensively for the first time.

As previously, General Farrar-Hockley has had access to all the British documents, released and withheld. Inter alia, he presents the story within the framework of policy adopted by the successive governments of Mr Attlee and Mr Churchill.

405 pages including maps and black & white photographs, plus Preface, Author's Acknowledgements, Conclusions and Reflections: Appendices, Source Documents and Bibliography and Index.
