"This solid political history provides a compelling, detailed narrative of Congress and the Korean War, to a much greater extent than anything that has been published to date. Its primary strength is its ability to tap into two understudied areas: congressional history and legislative-executive relations regarding the Korean War." -- K. C. Johnson, author of All the Way with LBJ: The 1964 Presidential Election
"This historical analysis sheds new light on the political happenings of the war and posits several new interpretations of work done by historians in the past. The work thus adds a new and critical component to the literature of the war and should appeal to Korean War scholars of all stripes as well as scholars and general readers interested in the Truman presidency, American politics during a divisive period of US history, and presidential decision making." -- Paul Pierpaoli, author of Truman and Korea: The Political Culture of the Early Cold War
"Clear and rich in detail, Blomstedt has written an excellent history of a key moment in US postwar national security." -- Choice
