A ‘forgotten war’ in modern history, the Korean War is rarely given much recognition or studied in detailed.

In fact, it was one of the bloodiest conflicts of the 20th century, a deadly clash of world-views as the UN allied itself with South Korea against the massed ranks of North Korean armies backed by Communist China.In this new book, Paul Edwards presents a fresh look at the Korean War, focusing on a number of unusual events that happened during the conflict. Beginning with a look at the war itself, Edwards goes onto tell the stories of the Salvation Army band that disappeared- UFO sightings- the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Maggie Higgins, and her battle to report in Korea as an equal with her male counterparts- and an operation to rescue orphan children. It also provides a fascinating look at the propaganda materials dropped over Korea by both sides.
