Overview

The Korean War is often a footnote in modern history, not given much recognition or studied in detailed. Osprey Digital presents this new look at a number of unusual events that happened during the conflict. Beginning with a look at the war itself and the history of US and Korean conflict, Paul Edwards goes onto tell the stories of the Salvation Army band that disappeared, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Maggie Higgins, Navy aid, including submarines and a mimic of the Dam Busters raid, and a look at the propaganda dropped over Korea by both sides. This miscellany of the war allows readers to dip in and out of this e-book only title, a perfect e-book for the daily commute.
