An interpretative history of the Korean War. The text examines the war within the broader context of Korea's history, offering an analysis of the course of the war, and assessing the role of both North and South Korea and the allied forces in the conflict. The study goes beyond the battlefield, to evaluate the contribution of the UN naval forces and the impact of the war on the homefront. Issues such as defectors, opposition to the war, POWs and the media are explored and original research concerning the war's origins and development is incorporated from Soviet archives. This work should prove to be of value to students and scholars of 20th-century history, particularly, those concerned with American and Pacific history.

From the Publisher:

"Chinese and Russian documents recently made public have shed new light on battlefield decisions. Benefiting from this newly declassified material as well as established sources, Sandler offers a timely new look at the war."--Library Journal

“Not only gives insight into the war that began in 1950, but points to its relevance in understanding the present situation in North and South Korea.”—McCormick Messenger

“A more expert and specialized attention to military detail than most other books on the subject, and it provides insight into many peripheral aspects of the fighting not hitherto explored.”—Virginia Quarterly Review

“Argues that the beginning of the end of the Soviet Union can be traced to President Harry Truman’s 1950 decision to send troops to the aid of South Korea.”—U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings

“A welcome addition, especially because of the inclusion of Soviet-era documents that clear up several questions concerning the war.”—Bowling Green Daily News

About the Author:
