About This Book

In June 1950, the North Koreans invaded South Korea. With the horrors of the Second World War still fresh in everyone's minds, US President Truman was reluctant to intervene, but within two weeks, American troops were in action as part of a UN task force. They were soon joined by military personnel from Britain, Canada, Australia, and a dozen other nations, facing 1.3 million Chinese soldiers who poured across the Manchurian border in support of North Korea. Thus began a three-year struggle that saw the world teeter on the brink of a Third World War. Now, sixty years on, Brian Catchpole provides a clear view of the conflict often referred to as "The Forgotten War".
