In this revised edition, men from the army, navy, and air force are honoured for their bravery in the Korean War. The Korean War (1950-53) forms a little-known but exciting part of Canada’s military history. The heroism and sacrifice of Canadians who fought in this conflict as part of the United Nations force has often been ignored. In this lively, anecdotal book, John Melady combines archival material and interviews with many Korean veterans. The result is a vivid, intensely human account of the war from its first days, to heroic battles such as Kapyong, to fascinating and more obscure incidents such as the Koje prison camp insurrection, as well as personal stories of doctors, POWs, and journalists who witnessed the conflict, including Pierre Berton and Rene Levesque. The men from across Canada who served and fought were forever changed by what they saw and experienced in this faraway land. Army, navy, air force all receive their share of long-overdue praise in this important book, which was originally published in 1983 but is now fully revised.

In contrast to the many books that use military, diplomatic, and historic language in analyzing the Korean War, this book takes a cultural approach that emphasizes the human dimension of the war, an approach that especially features Korean voices. There are chapters on Korean art on the war, translations into English of Korean poetry by Korean soldiers, and American soldier poetry on the war. There is a photographic essay on the war by combat journalist and Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Max Desfor. Another chapter includes and analyzes songs on the Korean War - Korean, American, and Chinese - that illuminate the many complex memories of the war. There is a discussion of Korean films on the war and a chapter on Korean War POWs and their contested memories. More than any other nonfiction book on the war, this one shows us the human face of tragedy for Americans, Chinese, and most especially Koreans. June 2000 was the fiftieth anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War; this moving volume is intended as a commemoration of it.

Although it has been many years since my service in the Military and it was for only two years, it was an important period of my life. I learned a lot in those two years that has helped me throughout my life. In the effort to write this book it has taken me back in time, reviving memories of old friends and things that have happened. I have tried to write of things I consider important. I have been fortunate to have lived long enough to become a old man. I know it was just by the luck of the draw that I was put where I was. I never volunteered for anything, nor did I try to get out of any order given to me. I am well aware I could have been put in the infantry instead of the artillery, where I did my time in the intelligence section. Most of the time a soldier happens to serve in duties he has no control over. This book has been written as much for my family and friends as for the general public. I hope all who takes the time to read what I have written will gain knowledge regarding the Korean War, and also my story is just one of the thousands of stories of young men who served their country at this time. For us the veterans, and our families IT WILL NEVER BECOME THE FORGOTTEN WAR . REMEMBER THIS, FREEDOM IS NOT FREE
