The Korean Conflict

Image of The Korean Conflict (Greenwood Press Guides to Historic Events of the Twentieth Century)
Author: Burton Kaufman
Publisher: Greenwood Press (1999)
Binding: Hardcover, 232 pages
Summary:
Grade 9 Up-An accurate, measured appraisal of a costly and tragic conflict that shaped American thinking about the Cold War until the fall of the Soviet Union. About half of the book contains historical narrative and analysis, and the remainder consists of biographical profiles of political and military people closely associated with the war, excerpts from important primary documents related to the event, black-and-white photos of war action, and a comprehensive annotated bibliography. As the preface notes, the Korean War is relatively ignored compared to the continuing American preoccupation with the Vietnamese Conflict-even though the earlier conflict had an immense impact on the latter. Paying close attention to military, political, and chronological detail, Kaufman provides a straightforward historical overview of the conflict showing how the U.S. became embroiled in this no-win war. Following this, he discusses in separate chapters the fragile Western alliance behind the U.S. forces, the Soviet and Chinese involvement, the controversial prisoners-of-war issue, and what the conflict meant to the American government and public.
