In Leadership in the Crucible, Kenneth Hamburger details the actions of the units in the United Nations counteroffensive following the Chinese intervention, including routine patrols, the harrowing battle of Twin Tunnels, and the pivotal siege of Chipyong-ni. From extensive personal interviews and a careful reconstruction of the written record, Hamburger brilliantly analyzes the roles that training, cohesion, morale, logistics, and leadership play in success or failure on the front lines of limited war. He also addresses the vexing problem of when, and at what level, commanders have the right and even the responsibility to question lawful orders they believe are flawed.
In this careful consideration of combat leadership at all levels, Hamburger offers his listeners stories of men sustaining themselves and one another to the limits of human endurance.

EXCELLENT HISTORICAL ACCOUNT, GREAT STORY
I admit, I don't have a vast knowledge of historical wars, so this really was a great read for me. I enjoyed the writing and the narration, and it really was amazing story. I was impressed with the detail, background and research, it was educational and entertaining. I now want to know more about history, and will definitely listen to more from both the author and narrator. Very well done.
