The Final Crucible details the 1st Marine Division's harrowing close-quarters battles during the final seven months of the Korean War, January to July 1953. The terrible five-day Battle of the Nevada Cities in March and the Marines' bloody stand at Boulder City on the last day of the shooting war are just two of the engagements detailed here. This volume follows The Outpost War: U.S. Marines in Korea, Vol. 1: 1952.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A vivid, well-written, and accurately documented accounting of an abundance of Marine guts and a shortfall of warrior glory in a forgotten war that should never have been fought
"Some of the best descriptive passages of small unit combat . . . A valuable contribution."
"The official history . . .does not capture the human drama; Lee Ballenger does this in spades. Not only does he write well and keep the purely military context in balance, but he also writes his history through the eyes of those who made it."
"Like its companion, "The Outpost War", this is a nearly indispensable Korean War history."
