The Korean War by Max Hastings

A good overview of the course of the war, with asides into the experiences of prisoners of war and (some) Koreans, mostly missing from the other books on the subject that I have read. For this reason alone I would recommend this book.

As Hastings is British and the book written for a British audience, there’s a focus on British (as opposed to Commonwealth) efforts in the fighting.
