The Korean War - Australia in the Giants' Playground

Cameron Forbes

The Korean war has never ended. Although a ceasefire was declared in 1953 after three years of savage fighting, the divided peninsula remains one of the world’s most dangerous flashpoints. 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.
