    Imbued With Despair

    This book is looking at the human condition of war from both angles. The stories were more enlightening than most history books, because the people who wrote them were involved. It is said the Korean War is forgotten due to predecessing victory in World War II and the emotional divisions during Vietnam. Its a beautiful compilation of stories from all angle, the Chinese Communists, The South Koreans, even a story by a North Korean. Well balanced and fair, especially impressed by story of Private Lee.

    Brilliant tribute to a 'police action'

    By far of all the Korean literature, this book is quite neutral in its politics-giving each side its deserved voice. The only thing that somewhat discouraged me was that they only had one North Korean soldier's story, but due to Kim Jong Il's iron grip, nobody would talk. I wish these compilations like these will be read. I always had sympathy for those that fought in the Korean War, because my grandpa was in it. Unlike the World War II vets who were honored, the American public was vastly indifferent to the consequences of the war. Unlike the Vietnam vet who came back with humiliation and mental abuse by the Left and the patriotic Right entailing Reagan. The Korean war vet was just dismissed as not important. Hopefully, one day, we will recognize the heroes of men and women on both sides of this incredibly brutal 'police action.'
