About the Author
Working with International News Service, the predecessor of United Press International, American John Rich spent three years in Korea covering the Korean War, from the outbreak in June 1950 to the armistice in 1953. After the war, he joined broadcaster NBC as a war correspondent, covering Vietnam, African civil wars and other major 20th century conflicts. In 1991, at the age of 73, he went to the Middle East to cover the first Gulf War. Currently retired, he splits his time between Maine and Florida.

INS Correspondent Rich covered the Korean War from 1950 to 1953, roaming the war-torn peninsula and offshore waters with his trusty Nikon camera, filing stories and snapping gorgeous Kodachrome shots of whatever caught his eye. Decades later, as the 60th anniversary of the Korean War loomed, family friends urged Rich to dust off his photographs and the result is this enormously appealing and entertaining book.
KOREAN WAR IN COLOR features over 160 images, many full page and some that are spread over two pages. Rich seemingly was everywhere in Korea so the reader is treated to shots of American/South Korean/North Korean/Allied troops, tanks, artillery, ships, aircraft, helicopters, Korean peasants, politicians, generals, devastated cities, the Armistice negotiations and so on. Visually KOREAN WAR IN COLOR is a delight. Rich also provides a running commentary on the photographs and his time in Korea.
Given the rarity of color histories of the Korean War and Rich's wonderful photographic eye, KOREAN WAR IN COLOR gets high marks. It's a real eye-opener and a delight to page through. Highly recommended.
