Summary
"Intense propaganda and limited press coverage during the Korean War, coupled with vague objectives and an incomplete victory, resulted in a popular narrative of partial truth and factual omission. Battlefield stories--essentially true but often missing significant information--added an element of myth. Drawing on a range of sources, the author reexamines the war's causes, costs and outcomes"--
