    Anyone got any recommendations for reading about the Korean War?


  2. Trip wire maybe along soon. Hes the chap you need to talk to re Korea.

  3. The Korean War, by Max Hastings. Read it a couple of years ago. IIRC it was quite thorough, but a bit hard going.

    Pan books. ISBN: 0-330-39288-3
  4. 'In the Devils Shadow"
    UN Special Operations during the Korean War
    by Col. Mike Haas, USAF,ret.

    "This Kind of War"
    by T.R.Fehrenbach

    "The Coldest War; a memoir of Korea"
    by James Bradey

    "Formidable Enemies; the North Korean and Chinese Soldiers in the Korean War"
    by Kevin Mahoney
  5. Green Berets in Korea by Fred Hayhurst:story of 41 independant commando royal marines in Korea
    Publisher Vangard Press
  6. Farrar the Para's book "The Edge of the Sword" is the best memoir about Brit troops in ROK. Lofty Large's book though has very interesting vignettes of PW life - his recounting the crude medical treatment and use of "mary-jane" to help him through his wounds is quite fascinating!
