The Korean War saw unforgettable sacrifice, memorable strategic maneuvering, and lasting geopolitical consequences. Yet the conflict remains known as the Forgotten War. This record of the Korean War-the first limited war of the nuclear age-recalls the buildup to and aftermath of hostilities in Korea, highlighting the roles of its key military and political architects. Readers will learn how the war that began as a struggle between North and South Korea drew in the United States, China, and the Soviet Union and turned the Cold War hot on Korean soil, impacting international relations for decades to come.
Dong-Choon Kim seeks to understand the true impact of the Korean War (1950-1953) on South Korea's people and society. How did key figures such as President Syngman Rhee respond when North Korean troops crossed the thirty-eighth parallel and what does this tell us about the nature of the South Korean state at the time? How did South Koreans experience the North Korean occupation and what happened once Seoul and other areas were restored? Why were so many people brutally massacred by both sides? How does the war continue to influence South Korean institutions and society? This social history of the Korean War addresses these crucial questions, exposing and probing the war's deepest wounds, wounds long concealed by Cold War rhetoric and successive oppressive military regimes in the South.

“A great journalist” raises troubling questions about the forgotten war in this courageous, controversial book—with a new introduction by Bruce Cumings (The Baltimore Sun). “Much about the Korean War is still hidden, and much will long remain hidden. I believe I have succeeded in throwing new light on its origins.” —From the author’s preface In 1945 US troops arrived in Korea for what would become America’s longest-lasting conflict. While history books claim without equivocation that the war lasted from 1950 to 1953, those who have actually served there know better. By closely analyzing US intelligence before June 25, 1950 (the war’s official start), and the actions of key players like John Foster Dulles, General Douglas MacArthur, and Chiang Kai-shek, the great investigative reporter I. F. Stone demolishes the official story of America’s “forgotten war” by shedding new light on the tangled sequence of events that led to it. The Hidden History of the Korean War was first published in 1952—during the Korean War—and then republished during the Vietnam War. In the 1990s, documents from the former Soviet archives became available, further illuminating this controversial period in history.
