RE: Recent Korean War Articles
Another one from the spring 2000 edition of PROCEEDINGS that may be of
interest to some:
Negotiated Joint Command Relationships: Korean War Amphibious Operations,
Issues include getting the right commander, with the relevant combat
and amphibious experience, in the right place at the right time; and
properly locating that place in the military hierarchy, assigning it
responsibilities appropriate to the task at hand and discretion sufficient
to the task.
