"And not so many things to watch.
But, I studied much about my country's desperate history.
This must be a good historical documentary on Korean war.After having seen this, I strengthened my mind more to fight against the DPRK tyranny regime in North Korea, a component of AXIS OF EVIL.Finally, I FEEL to thank you Americans for giving us priceless freedom now we Koreans enjoy."
An excellent documentary about "the forgotton war".

"I purchased this DVD for my Father who is a Veteran and ex POW of the Korean war. We both agree that this is one of the best documentaries on the subject yet. High quality narration and footage give the viewer a good understanding of how and why the war was fought."
Great Reference for Modelers

"The quality of the color footage is excellent & an order of magnitude better than any WW2 color doc you'll see. Most of the content is from filmers attached to the Marines, but there is also some Army & air footage too. The doc is loaded with Pershings in action, and you get a good feel for the period color 'Marine Corps Green', which is like a deep Bronze green. The coverage is mainly action, very little on politics. Pershings blasting, Corsairs dropping napalm, grunts shooting flamethrowers...you get the idea. A must have if you are a Korean War military historian, and for WW2 buffs who want to see the same equipment used in high quality color film. Buy it & see how some very underappreciated warriors held back the Red Beast & won the second round of the Cold War (Berlin Airlift being the first). Unfortunately the generation of the time, spoiled with the absolute crushing victories over the Axis Powers of WW2, cynically dubbed the war 'to die for a tie'. Tell that to the generations of South Koreans who have been spared a life under the insane dictators to their north. In absolute terms, the war was as much a victory for the US/UN as was the First Gulf War. Limited objectives...keep South Korea & later Kuwait, free."
