絲 Free Read Format Kindle ᛦ The Korean War: A History  Ѹ By Bruce Cumings ढ 絲 Free Read Format Kindle ᛦ The Korean War: A History Ѹ By Bruce Cumings ढ A bracing account of a war that lingers in our collective memory as both ambiguous and unjustly ignoredFor Americans, it was a discrete conflict lasting from 1950 to 1953 that has long been overshadowed by World War II, Vietnam, and the War on Terror But as Bruce Cumings eloquently explains, for the Asian world the Korean War was a generations long fight that still haunts contemporary events And in a very real way, although its true roots and repercussions continue to be either misunderstood, forgotten, or willfully ignored, it is the war that helped form modern Americas relationship to the world.With access to new evidence and secret materials from both here and abroad, including an archive of captured North Korean documents, Cumings reveals the war as it was actually fought He describes its start as a civil war, preordained long before the first shots were fired in June 1950 by lingering fury over Japans occupation of Korea from 1910 to 1945 Cumings then shares the neglected history of Americas postWorld War II occupation of Korea, the untold stories of bloody insurgencies and rebellions, and the powerful militaries organized and equipped by America and the Soviet Union in that divided land He tells of the United States officially entering the action on the side of the South, and exposes as never before the appalling massacres andatrocities committed on all sides and the oceans of napalm dropped on the North by U.S forces in a remarkably violent war that killed as many as four million Koreans, two thirds of whom were civilians.In sobering detail, The Korean War chronicles a U.S home front agitated by Joseph McCarthy, where absolutist conformity discouraged open inquiry and citizen dissent Cumings incisively ties our current foreign policy back to Korea an America with hundreds of permanent military bases abroad, a large standing army, and a permanent national security state at home, the ultimate result of a judicious and limited policy of containment evolving into an ongoing and seemingly endless global crusade.Elegantly written and blisteringly honest, The Korean War is, like the war it illuminates, brief, devastating, and essential.Bruce Cumings is the Gustavus F and Ann M Swift Distinguished Service Professor and chair of the Department of History at the University of Chicago, and specializes in modern Korean history and East Asian American relations He lives with his family in Charlottesville, Virginia.
