9781854094391: At War in Korea

Lodged between the unforgettable horrors of World War II and the cultural upheaval of Vietnam, the Korean conflict often fades by comparison. Yet, as recent events in North Korea prove, the effects of the war linger still. This tribute to those who fought -- written by a participant -- blends personal reminiscences and photographs to create a graphic impression of what went on. The information here covers the opposing armies, unique employment of the United Nations Command, use of helicopters in battle, Chinese attack and spring offensive, presidential citations, life in the line, patrolling, propaganda, and prisoners of war.
