The Korean War is the most comprehensive and detailed bibliography compiled to date on the American involvement in The Forgotten War. In this revised and expanded second edition, Keith D. McFarland's clearly written annotations provide concise descriptions of more than 2,600 of the most important books, articles, and documents written in English on the conflict in Korea. Key topics include origins of the war; the political and military roles of North and South Korea, the United States, the Soviet Union, China, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Turkey, and other United Nations members; campaigns and battles; weapons and uniforms; and the military and diplomatic aspects of the war. Specific subjects are easy to find using the index organized by topic and author, making The Korean War a necessity for every academic or research library.

Industry Reviews

'The Korean War has never been officially brought to an end, the present situation being only an armistice. Given the unpredictable of North Korean policy, we must hope future events do not repeat those which produced this substantial bibliography.' -- Reference Reviews
