Summary
After World War II ended, control of Korea was divided between the United States, who occupied the southern part, and the Soviet Union, who occupied the north. Tensions between the two new countries escalated until North Korea invaded South Korea in 1950. This book describes battles between American and United Nations forces and Soviet, North Korean, and Chinese forces for control of the entire Korean Peninsula
