"In 1950, nearly 25,000 Canadians signed on for a UN-sponsored 'police action' to stop the Communist incursion into South Korea. They joined a multi-national expeditionary force that quickly found itself embroiled in a full-scale war. Members of the Canadian navy, airforce and infantry fought with distinction and endured months of bloody stalemate that ultimately stopped the Communists but failed to reunite the people of the Korean peninsula - with consequences that continue to haunt the world today. Ted Barris interviewed hundreds of Korean War veterans to gather their stories of heroism and survival, tragedy and absurdity, successes and SNAFUS. He has woven their tales into a fascinating look at a war that many have forgotten." Book is Fine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, tiny dent on rear hinge, minor rubbing.
