Armoured Warfare in the Korean War, Anthony Tucker-Jones

Although the Korean War didn't feature any major armoured battles, both sides did use tanks in quite large numbers, and the side with the better tanks often had a significant advantage on the battlefield. This entry in the Images of War series looks at the impact tanks had on the fighting in Korea, with a good selection of the main tanks used on both sides - ex-Soviet tanks for the North Koreans and a mix of Second World War and more modern tanks for the UN forces. The pictures are supported by useful relevant captions.

Not all of the pictures are of tanks or armoured vehicles. Major aspects of the war are also covered, including the amphibious landings and the various types of aircraft that took part in the battle. This is a good decision - there weren't that many different types of tanks used in Korea (T-34, SU-75, Sherman, Pershing, Patton, Chaffee, Churchill, Cromwell and Chieftain by my count).

Not every picture comes from Korea. The author clearly couldn’t find suitable pictures of two of the British tanks to serve in Korea, so the picture of a Cromwell comes from Normandy (according to the caption) and of a Churchill from somewhere in Germany or Holland (based on the partially seen name of a café behind the tank).

The author has decided not to assume that the reader is familiar with the course of the Korean War, and so the chapter introductions also serve as a useful short history of the war, combined with an examination of the changing role of armour in the conflict. At first the T-34 was king of the battlefield, especially as the South Koreans lacked any effective anti-armour weapons. This changed when the US introduced Pershing and Patton tanks and more UN air power appeared, and there was then a spell when the UN armour ruled the battlefield. Finally came the period of static warfare with tanks as immobile pill boxes or mobile artillery.

After the second one international struggle, army analysts idea that the one position major armored forces have been ever more likely to confront one another back used to be in imperative Europe the place the Nato alliance could fend off the Soviet pink military.

After the Second World War military analysts thought that the only place significant armoured forces were ever likely to confront each other again was in central Europe where the Nato alliance would fend off the Soviet Red Army. But then during the Korean War of 1950-53 large numbers of armoured fighting vehicles were deployed by both sides, and this neglected aspect of the conflict is the subject of Anthony Tucker-Jones&rsquos photographic history.

Korea, with its rugged mountains, narrow passes, steep valleys and waterlogged fields. was not ideal tank country so the armour mainly supported the infantry and rarely engaged in battles of manoeuvre. Yet the wide variety of armour supporting UN and North Korean forces played a vital if unorthodox role in the swiftly moving campaigns.

For this fascinating book over 180 contemporary photographs have been selected to show Soviet-built T-34/85s and Su-76s, American M4 Shermans, M26 Pershings and M46 Pattons, and British Cromwells and Centurions in action in one of the defining conflicts of the Cold War.

The new title from pen and sword ‘Images Of War’ series takes a look at some of the many vehicles to be involved in the Korean war on all sides. As such there’s a good section of tanks, afvs and other military vehicles scattered across the book, interspersed with a fascinating collection of images that tell the tale on this almost forgotten war. You’ll find photos of British centurion and Cromwell, American Sherman, Patton and Pershing and an assortment of Russian equipment used by the enemy, but it was worth nothing that there are a few images that a re in the book that are ‘examples of’ and not photographed during the Korean war. The amount of equipment covered within the book is varied enough to appeal to a wide audience. All of the images contained within this fine book in black and white, but the quantity and quality of those images makes it well worth the cover price and at just £14.99 its worth taking a look at.
