The Korean War was the first "hot war" of the Cold War, the first "police action" undertaken by the United States under the aegis of the United Nations, and the first war to be over-shadowed by the menace of nuclear conflagration. It has been called America's "forgotten war," but it had a profound impact on East-West relations and America's foreign and military policies. Offering a wealth of information, Korean War Almanac contains a day-by-day chronology of the events and the people involved in this important war. Alphabetically arranged entries bring the period to life by vividly describing the people, types of weaponry employed, and many other interesting details relevant to this study. Nearly 70 photographs and maps illustrate the engaging text, and an extensive bibliography aids further research.
