Description

Here is a blisteringly real retrospective of one of the most controversial military actions in U.S. history: the Korean War. Associated Press writer Robert J. Dvorchak is among the photographers and reporters providing unforgettable stories from the front lines of battle, witnesses to what President Truman characterized as a "a police action" but which led to the death of over two million people, including 33,000 Americans, from 1950 to 1953.

Battle for Korea pays tribute to the devotion of South Korean and American forces in over three hundred stunning photos by AP photographers who followed the soldiers in combat. Here, too, are the heart-wrenching stories of "Harry's Police," as American soldiers took to calling themselves. From their unyielding defense of the Pusan Perimeter, to General MacArthur's brilliant "drawstring approach" at Inchon, to the hard-fought retreat from the Chosin Reservoir, the images and words will stop you cold.
