Overview

A companion book to the documentary produced by Wisconsin Public Television, Wisconsin Korean War Stories tells the story of the "forgotten war" through first-person interviews, photographs and letters. These are the voices of green infantrymen who fought and failed to take Heartbreak Ridge, of farm boys from the heartland who survived three years as prisoners of war, and of small-town nurses in MASH units who treated the wounded and sometimes sent them back into the fray. From enlistment to front line combat, air support missions to dreams of home on moonless nights, Wisconsin Korean War Stories is an unforgettable collection.

The "Wisconsin Korean War Stories" project is a partnership of the Wisconsin Historical Society and Wisconsin Public Television, in association with the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This companion book to a documentary produced by Wisconsin Public Television offers a perspective on a war in which 132,000 Wisconsinites served. From combat soldiers and POWs to nurses, green recruits, and veterans of other wars, all had stories to tell, often of harrowing experiences. Military history at this personal level tells little about the origin or the course of the war, although each chapter has a one- or two-page summary; rather, this is about each individual's experiences. A lot of these veterans remember the cold more than anything. Others remember their friends, the soldiers in the next hole, the Turkish regiment on the next hill, the dead. Few recall the ideological and political challenges over which the UN went to war. Their war was no grand crusade, just something to survive. With many contemporary photos and a few maps, this is a useful if not vital addition to Korean War collections.
—Edwin B. Burgess
