The Korean War: The Fight Across The 38th Parallel
- American History, Vietnam & Korea
Crossing the line in Korea
The Korean War devastated a country, killed millions, and displaced millions more. The fighting involved combatants from dozens of nations, with more than 20 countries sending soldiers as part of the multinational UN force. In communist North Korea, more than a million Chinese regulars fought as part of the People's Volunteer Army, while the Soviet Union supplied pilots and military hardware for the communist cause.
Illustrated with 150 archival photographs, maps, and illustrations, The Korean War tells the story of the three-year war from the conditions that led to the conflict to the armistice and the establishment of the demilitarized zone along the 38th parallel, leading to the development of the two distinct Koreas we see today.
