The Korean War.it has been called America's "forgotten war," but it had a profound impact on East-West relations and America's foreign and military policies. More than 54,000 Americans died attempting to halt the spread of communism to South Korea. The Korean War Almanac, written by one of America's most respected military strategists, is the first comprehensive reference book on this important subject.
The Almanac provides a wealth of accurate information on every aspect of the conflict. The first part of the volume includes a concise assessment of the historical and geographical realities that shaped the war. Part II offers a detailed chronology of events, and Part III, the heart of the book, contains some 375 articles on:
- Key personalities
- Military units and awards
- and much more
More than 100 carefully chosen photos and 10 maps complement the articles, many of which include suggestions for further reading.
