The Korean War began with a well-planned, nearly faultlessly executed invasion of South Korea by North Korean troops. Only the introduction of U.S. Army forces saved the South from destruction. This much is well-known. But what remains hidden about this "Forgotten War"?Stanley Sandler's reassessment of the conflict draws on newly released documents from Russian and Chinese state archives. He deals with the history of the Korean peninsula before the war, including the Japanese, American, and Soviet occupations and the arbitrary division between North and South.The book deals extensively with the course of the fighting while relating military events to relevant diplomatic and social developments. Sandler gives special attention to technology and weaponry, the ground, air, and naval battles, and the United Nations contributions to the war. He also addresses psychological warfare and the prisoner of war camps.
