KOREAN ATROCITY!: FORGOTTEN WAR CRIMES, 1950-1953. Much of this material is horrific. At least 1,615 documented atrocities and war crimes were perpetrated against United Nations troops in Korea.
KOREAN ATROCITY!: Forgotten War Crimes, 1950-1953, by Philip D. Chinnery. This book almost happened by accident. The author was doing research at the Public Records Office while acting as historian for the National Ex-Prisoners Of War Association when he discovered some recently declassified files on the Korean War. These recorded 1,615 atrocities and war crimes perpetrated against United Nations troops in Korea. Much of this material is horrific. If there had been a clear victor in the war, war crimes trials would surely have followed the cease fire. Hard cover. Maps and important photos. 286 pages.
