Summary
Providing more than merely a military history of the Korean War, this record offers a complete assessment of the conflict in both factual and anecdotal formats. Following a brief history of Korea, this detailed book chronicles the events leading to the North Korean invasion of the south and discusses the United Nations' response. All aspects of the war itself are discussed, including the tumultuous command of U.N. forces, the two years of bloody stalemate, the atrocities committed by both sides during the war, and the ceasefire that ended the fighting but did not resolve the conflict. Finally, this history examines the impact made by the Korean War and supplies biographies for Dwight Eisenhower, Kim Il Sung, and Harry Truman
