The The Korean War Summary

The The Korean War: v.2: The Korean War Uncertain Victory by Donald Knox

Begun in The Korean War: Pusan to Chosin, Donald Knox's engrossing and stunning oral history continues here with the last two and a half years of the war and the uneasy armistice achieved in 1953. For too many Americans the Korean War is a piece of history that remains vaguely remembered and scantly acknowledged. Yet the death toll for U.S. service personnel in the three years in Korea was virtually the same as in ten years in Vietnam, and the motivation of the soldiers who risked their lives was no less noble than those who fought in World War II. Knox, determined that the human side of the Korean conflict--the mud and the frost, the fear and the exultation, the gallantry and the sacrifice--be fixed in memory, undertook the formidable task of collecting the experiences of the soldiers who fought in Korea. His own narrative, with additional text by Alfred Coppel, is interwoven here with soldiers' words to create a riveting account of a brutal war.
