News and Notes

Erik Spanberg reviews David Halberstam's final book, The Coldest Winter: America and The Korean War, for the Christian Science Monitor:

Halberstam's "relentless work ethic made for sober-minded portraits and also helped establish a ready rapport with all manner of subjects. The Coldest Winter offers infinite examples of Halberstam's ability to coax former soldiers to tell their stories in the starkest, most human terms....Halberstam worked on The Coldest Winter off and on for a decade. His commitment to the project shows, as the book chronicles multiple facets of the war: the battles, the soldiers, the commanders, geopolitical landscapes and the emerging cold war that shaped the responses of all the players."
