The Korean War | [Cameron Forbes]

The Korean War

The Korean War was a 20th Century conflict that has never ended. South Korea, a powerhouse economy and dynamic democracy sits uneasily alongside North Korea, the world’s most secretive, belligerent, unpredictable and repressive totalitarian state. Today, tensions simmer and occasionally flare into outright violence on a peninsula dense with arms, munitions and nuclear warheads. Cameron Forbes, acclaimed author of Hellfire, tells the story of the war and Australia’s involvement in it in a riveting narrative.

Publisher's Summary

The Korean War was a 20th Century conflict that has never ended. South Korea, a powerhouse economy and dynamic democracy sits uneasily alongside North Korea, the world’s most secretive, belligerent, unpredictable and repressive totalitarian state. Today, tensions simmer and occasionally flare into outright violence on a peninsula dense with arms, munitions and nuclear warheads.

Cameron Forbes, acclaimed author of Hellfire, tells the story of the war and Australia’s involvement in it in a riveting narrative.

From the letters and diaries of those diggers who fought across Korea’s unforgiving hills and mountains to the grand strategies formulated in Washington, Moscow and Beijing, The Korean War reveals the conflict on all its levels – human, military and geopolitical.

    "The Forgotten War Remembered"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is excellent value for anyone interested in military history and tales of personal commitment.


    Any additional comments?

    It is important not to think that WWI, WWII and Vietnam are the only times that soldiers fought for our nation. This war was every bit as important as the others even though it sometimes seems to be forgotten by many people.
