The Korean War was the backdrop for many firsts in military history. It was the first major military conflict of the nuclear age. The conflict also saw the first extensive use of the helicopter, the first battles between jet aircraft, and the first time two world powers-the United States and China-met on a battlefield since World War II. Yet the conflict is often referred to today as "The Forgotten War."

The most comprehensive single-volume reference work on the war available, Encyclopedia of the Korean War sets a new standard for military history, offering in-depth coverage of the historical, political, technological, and social milestones of this event. Drawn from previously secret information found in Russian and Chinese archives as well as numerous primary source documents, this volume includes more than 600 objective A-to-Z entries written by over 100 military and civilian experts.

Coverage includes:
  • Pre- and post-war Korea
  • Crucial battles
  • Military and political leaders
  • Events and operations
  • Military organizations
  • Historical and geographical facts
  • United Nations commands and committees
  • U.S. military organizations and policy.
