About the Book

"Although sometimes forgotten in the shadows of World War II and the Vietnam War, the Korean War has at last begun to get its share of historical scrutiny. This bibliography serves as an essential reference tool, guiding the researcher through the studies of the build-up to the war, its strategic aspects, the roles of China and the United Nations as well as the United States, and the events following the withdrawal of U.S. forces."
