The Korean War, by Brian Catchpole

A fairly easy to read account of the war, from the lead up, through the initial stages against North Korean troops, through to the stalemate with China, and finally to where we are today. The book covers many facets, politics, military, the UN involvement, the world wide approach to the war.

There’s not enough information on the North Korean/Chinese/Russian side of things, but obviously primary documents would be nearly impossible to obtain.

Well worth reading.
