This book of 128 pages can be regarded as an extended Wikipedia article. It has more details than an article on a similar topic, but not nearly as much as a monograph on a war. Actually it even lacks some details such as statistics that the Wikipedia article Korean War has. This is an excellent book for those who want to have a good sense about this "forgotten" war, but cannot afford a lot of time on this topic.
The author is extremely prolific on a variety of topics (100+ books). This means it is impossible for the author to do a thorough research on each topic, so it is not surprising to see some minor inaccuracies.
The Korean War was started by Kim Il Sung to unify Korea under his rule. U. N. troops primarily consisting of American soldiers saved South Korea, and almost eliminated the Kim dynasty. The Chinese Communist Party saved the Kim dynasty by pushing the U.N. troops back to the 38th parallel with an enormous cost. Cheng Ganyuan, a Korean War veteran of the CCP army and a retired law professor, estimates in his recently published book that more than 800,000 Chinese soldiers were killed based on analysis of each battle recorded in military history.
This war should never be forgotten. It is another strong evidence of the anti-humanity nature of communist regimes and the sacrifice of the US and other nations for the freedom and dignity of other peoples.
If you want to spend an afternoon or an evening to read about the Korean War, get this book.
