    The Korean War (E–pub READ) ë Bruce Cumings Other reviewers have already pointed out that the title is a misnomer While Cumings manages to cover the history of the war as well as the pre and post history it is definitely not a straight narrative history The book is a revisionist look at the forgotten war which tries to show the darker side atrocities by our soldiers and allie

NORTH AND SOUTH EAST AND WESTWhile reading through the reviews of Bruce Cummings The Korean War I noticed than one reviewer complain that Cummings book isn t a history of the war Up to a point they are right it is not a conventional history of that war beyond the first thirty seven pages of two hundred and forty three that narrate the actions of leaders and armies from beginning to end of the war But it only takes a moment of reflection to realise that the remainder of the book is as valid a part of the history of that warCummings places the war of 1950 53 firmly in its historical context making it clear that there had in essence been conflict going back decades in Korea exacerbated by the Japanese invasion of Manchuria and between those who collaborated with the Japanese and those who didn t To an extent this division was also class based He also disabuses the reader of any notion that South Korea was a land of peace and tranuillity prior to the war insurrections were endemic and the South Korean regimes response were extremely brutal The background detail on the two regimes that formed when the US artificially split Korea in 1945 is useful in so far as it diminishes assumptions based on the current state of North South KoreaOther issues dealt with include a fresh look at how the war started the role of foreign powers of whom the US followed by the Chinese were the most important the uestion of US s possible use of nuclear weapons the role the war played in the origin of the Military Industrial complex attrocities Cummings claims the US South Korean forces were responsible for roughly six times attrocities than the Chinese North Korean forces how both sides viewed one another and how memories of the war have effected all sides not least the North where the War and their previous experience with Japanese Imperialism provide historical justification for the regimeThis is a fascinating book and in my opinion gains than it loses for not being a chronological account of the movements of armies and the decisions of generals and political leaders Instead its thoughtful analysis and multifaceted approach serve to give the reader a richer view of a war that in the West has largely been eclipsed by the Second World War that preceded it and the War in Vietnam which was the next Asian country to feel the effects of US military intervention The Korean War is a book I wouldn t hesitate to recommend

This is the book to read for an understanding of Korea not just the Korean War but Korea itself north and south North Korea will be much less enigmatic once you read this book Cumings goes deep into Korean history and especially into the Japanese occupation of Korea and Manchuria from the 1930s until the end of WWII In Cumings retelling the North under Kim Il Jong was heroic in its determination to rid the country of their Japanese overlords and return to Korea to the Koreans The South under Syngman Rhee was controlled Japanese collaborators who cooperated with the the US in its dedication to ridding the country of leftists whether or not they were working in league with the Northern communists Worse atrocities were committed by the South than any committed by the North And even after the outcome at the 38th parallel was rather well settled the US continued a bombing campaign for 2 years to decimate all northern economic activity Thus the attitudes of the North toward the Japanese the US and the South were cemented by the reality of their subjugation and persecution They blocked out the rest of the world other than the Chinese who had helped them and became the North Korea that we know todayCumings does not approve or condone the dynasty that has developed in North Korea their manipulation of mythology and superstition But it becomes clear from reading his book why it became that wayBeyond being great history this book is also historiographical and discusses how the history of Korea and the war were written with a non Korean bias making the actions of Kim Il Jong seem like those of a fanatic rather than one seeking a legitimate nationalistic goal

This book was informative about mostly ghastly and terrible war crimes that were committed during the Korean war It did not go in depth about the actual battles or the White House strategy of the war as I was hoping It was clearly written by a hard core liberal with a lot of anger built up for his own country The book demonized the South Koreans and the Americans in the war while trying to make Kim Il Sung look not so bad The most damning part of the book was when he stated and I m paraphrasing Yes the North Koreans killed several American POW s but it was a merciful bullet behind the ear He then went on to make the crimes committed by the North Koreans pale in comparison to the evil south Koreans and explain why the communists hate us so much It was well written but it did not focus on the war so much and if I were in the Kremlin I would use this book as propaganda for young students studying the west Too liberal too anti American too many exceptions for communist crimes
