The Coldest Winter: America and the Korean War is a non-fiction book by the author David Halberstam. It was published in 2007, after his death.[1]


The book, written more than half a century after the Korean War, looks at the war from a different perspective than previously written works on the war by various authors.

Quotes pay homage to an earlier Korean War author T. R. Fehrenbach, and The Coldest Winter mentions Fehrenbach's combat experience, something that Fehrenbach never mentions for himself in his seminal work, This Kind of War.
