The Korean War: America's Forgotten Warby Brian Fitzgerald
Provides detailed information on the events leading up to and during the Korean War. Includes source notes and timeline.
Children's Literature - Danielle WilliamsOne of the least understood and well known wars in American history, is the Korean War. Coming hard on the heels of World War II and an overwhelming allied victory, the Korean War was an altogether different war than had been seen before. Unlike previous wars where a nation or group of nations fought against others, each nation's leaders in charge of their own forces and working toward a common goal, the Korean War was never openly declared as a war and was fought by the United Nations Peace Keepers army. Yet, despite the historical importance of this war, little is known of it other than the fact that it occurred shortly after World War II ended. The Korean War has had long-reaching impact on U.S. foreign policy today, and is still in a cease fire, the peace treaty never having been signed by South Korean leaders. Fitzgerald presents the facts of the Korean War in a riveting style that inspires a desire to know more about it and the policies and people that shaped the conflict. The text is part of the "Snapshots in History" series.
