Brothers at war - the unending conflict in Korea

Sheila Miyoshi Jager

A major new history told from all sides, to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the armistice in the Korean War.

Distinguished American professor Sheila Miyoshi Jager interweaves international events and personal accounts to give a brilliant new history of the Korean War, its aftermath and its global impact told from American, Korean, Soviet and Chinese sides. This is the first account to examine not only the military, but the social and political aspects of the war across the whole region - and it takes the story up to the present day: for the current disputes are part of a conflict that has been ongoing for more than seventy years.

Drawing on diplomatic archives and reports from South Korea's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Jager analyses top-level military strategy and depicts on-the-ground atrocities committed by both side that have never been revealed. Brother at war is the most accessible, up-to-date and balanced account yet written, rich with maps and illustrations.
