This comprehensive assessment by experts of the significant literature and research about the Korean War has been designed for broad interdisciplinary use. Edited by Brune, this one-volume research tool evaluates traditional interpretations, recent findings and trends, and points to studies that are still needed on various topics. Twenty-three topical chapters cover the historical background and general references; international aspects of the war and the role and perspectives of major combatants--from the United Nations and Korea to European and Asian and Pacific nations, including information on the most recent sources from the Soviet Union and Communist China; the military policies and the strategies and tactics of the U.S. Army, Navy and Marines, and Air Force; the Korean unification struggle after the war; and the relationship of the U.S. homefront to the Korean War--from the Administration and Congress to public opinion, and the war as seen by women and minorities and through the eyes of the cinema and TV. The book is fully indexed and is easily accessible for varied use by students, teachers, and researchers in different fields and at all levels.Brune, Lester H. is the author of 'Korean War Handbook of the Literature and Research' with ISBN 9780313289699 and ISBN 0313289697.
