The Korean War: Fire And Ice
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
The Korean War was a war of firsts: The first jet war; the first war where it was not possible to unleash full power, politically or militarily, and the first battlefield of the Cold War. Lasting three years, it took more than 2,000,000 military and civilian lives in its bloody wake. Setting all the rules for East/West conflict during the nuclear age brought an unknowing world closer to an all-out atomic war than has ever been told. Historians, battle veterans and archival footage reveal the pain, glory, and pathos of the war.

Three good points and a bad:
Edward Hermann is an outstanding narrator. He oozes credibility. The cinematography and editing were also very engaging. Finally, in four discs, the series was information dense, and I particularly appreciated the emphasis on the politics of the war.
The one thing I would have like to see more about was the campaign at Chosin. I have heard quite a bit about it from other sources, but didn't see much in this series.
Overall, a great investment for a history hobbyist or student.
