In this nearly forgotten conflict, the death toll for U.S. servicemen in Korea over three years was virtually the same as in Vietnam over ten. This second and final volume of an acclaimed oral history describes the final years of brutal assaults, culminating in an uneasy armistice. Index; map.

Donald Knox (1936-1986) was an award winning producer and director of television documentaries. He is also the author of Death March: The Survivors of Bataan and The Korean War: Uncertain Victory (with Alfred Coppel).From Publishers Weekly:
The second and concluding volume of the late Knox's oral history of the 1950-53 war, this covers the last two and a half years with quotes from letters, diaries and interviews interspersed with brief summaries of unfolding events. Generals and colonels are heard from occasionally, but mostly these are the recollections of enlisted men and junior officers who grappled directly with North Korean and Chinese troops. The Korean War is now largely forgotten, and the cumulative effect of these reminiscences and contemporary documents (unit radio logs, for instance) distills the conflict vividly and memorably. There is a section devoted to the veterans' homecoming that poignantly dramatizes the difference between the welcome accorded the Korean vet and those who fought in Vietnam.
