The war in Korea has a special significance in the history of "limited" conflicts. During this conflict, soldiers of China, USSR, USA, Great Britain, Turkey, Ethiopia and many other countries participated in combat alongside with armies of South and North Korea. In fact, this was a first armed conflict between two major groupings: a pro-Soviet and a pro-American.
The book covers the course of combat operations, armed forces of the participants of the war, and their uniform and insignia. The text is accompanied with unique photographs. Color illustrations are created on the basis of the war time documents and deliver a very clear image of uniforms of more than ten different countries' armies.
The book would appeal to the wide group of readers interested in the history of armed forces and uniforms.
