Children's Literature
The Korean War remains one of the most misunderstood of America's wars. After World War II and during the Cold War, Korea remained an occupied and divided nation. In the South, a government was established that depended upon American assistance to survive. North Korea became a dictatorial and communist state reliant upon the Soviet Union and The People's Republic of China to exist. In 1950 the North Korean army stormed across the border in a surprise attack. After nearly conquering all of South Korea, the communist army was driven back by United Nations forces spearheaded by American troops. Eventually, Chinese troops entered the war and spawned a bloody stalemate. After nearly two years of negotiations, a cease-fire was signed that left the borders where they were prior to the North Korean attack. The demilitarized zone between North and South Korea remains one of the most dangerous places in the world; and since no peace treaty has yet been signed, massive armies continue to confront each other. This compelling story is ably told in Scott Marquette's Korean Conflict. As part of the author's eight-book "America at War" series, this work features a slim text with many illustrations. Since the situation in Korea remains a major flash point in today's complex world, this solidly written historical account provides an interesting approach to current events. 2003, Rourke Publishing, Romaneck
