Book Description

The Korean War is known to many as the ‘forgotten war’. Resulting from a ‘tug-o-war’ between major world powers and the division of one country, the war would be a haunting legacy that would continue to plague Koreans and the United Nations for generations.

Despite an armistice, that legacy would create a tragic path that continues, even to this day, to keep two nations on the brink of war, where peace, it seems, is more about continued sparring than ending the heart-wrenching and sometimes inhumane existences of so many millions of suffering peoples.

With a history of varied offensives, battles, sieges, raids and operations, some of which were successful and others which did nothing to aid the situation, the road that led Koreans and others to war must be understood in order to plan a peaceful future that both North and South Koreans can one day enjoy.

What follows is a short history of the war, the key figures, and the battles and politics involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative June 7, 2012
By Carolyn
Format:Kindle Edition
It is short enough to read within an hour and gives the important facts about the war just so you can get an overview which is great if you are writing some sort of paper. I purchased this book because I needed to write a paper for school and I didnt know much about this war and it really helped.

4.0 out of 5 stars easy to read July 26, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I travelled to South Korea and wanted to know some facts about the Korean War which had lead to the current sad division of the peninsula. This book is a really brief description of the war. Its short length is its advantage and disadvantage at the same time. It is easy to read and can be finished in one hour but I would have been happy to spend one more hour with it to get more insight on the geopolitical and regional interests which were at stakes during the different stages of the war. The geographical evolution of the war was difficult to follow without a map.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time! March 20, 2014

It's about time someone remembered the Korean War. As a veteran of that war,
I have been very disappointed in the response of the public. While I was in the service for three years, I got one (1)
letter thanking me for my service.
