I was in the service during the Korean War and this is one of the best books on the war that I've read to date. I am saddened to remember that so many, suffered so much, to be so easily forgotten. During its 3 year duration, what Truman would call a "Police Action" cost the lives of 3,000,000 people, including more than 35,000 Americans as well as 8,500 MIA.
Though few recognize it, the Korean War was the precursor of the Vietnam War. The two conflicts, separated by a decade, were inextricably linked. Returning Korean War veterans were spat on and vilified too. Most Americans however, were apathetic toward them, as if they had never been gone. And now, to add insult to injury, it is reported that Ken Burns (producer of the Civil War series) has chosen to skip over the Korean War, one of America's bloodiest conflicts, as if it were no more than a historical speed bump, and move on to the Vietnam War of which he plans to produce, what will surely be another of his excellent visual productions. Selective remembering appears easier for some than others.
