Made up of reprinted coverage from DC’s flagship publication, the Washington Post newspaper book is a thrilling insight into the key events in Korea.

Reportage begins on 26th June, 1950, following the previous day’s events wherein 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel – the boundary between the Soviet-backed north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south.

When July arrives, the book covers the news that American troops had begun landing in Korea, with the 24th Division attempting to postpone the socialist threat. Undeniably, US officials viewed the conflict as a war against the forces of international communism – a view reflected in the newspaper headlines at the time, which frequently made reference to the ‘Reds’.

During the remainder of 1950 and the rest of ’51 and ’52, the book concentrates on the back and forth fighting. Casualties escalated with little for either side to show for it. And even though the US and its allies achieved total naval domination, the battle on the land was in stalemate. The result was the beginning of armistice talks, but as the book clearly shows, these dragged on for two years.

It wasn’t until the Spring and Summer of 1953 that a truce was on the horizon. Starting in March and finishing with the signing of the Armistice Pact in July, the book incorporates all the major reports that help paint a picture of the ongoing efforts to secure peace. It wasn’t a moment too soon – despite lasting only three years, the war had cost the lives of over five million people.
