7 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harry S. Truman made decisions as president that would have a decisive impact in determining the course of history in Northeast Asia after World War II. These essays examine how Truman acted to resolve challenges facing the United States from 1945 to 1952 in Japan, China, and the two Koreas. The authors, all recognized authorities on postwar U.S. intelligence or foreign relations, present new and provocative explanations for Truman's policies that previous historians have debated for a half-century. Extensive research in government archives, manuscript collections, and Chinese and Soviet source materials present a more complete assessment of the impact of Truman's policies toward China and in the Korean War, Truman's decisions about Japan, and especially the dropping of atomic bombs and postwar occupation. This collection looks at how Truman's decisions in Northeast Asia defined the legacy of his presidency. --! From back cover

Aimed primarily at readers with a special interest in military history and contemporary conflict studies, the authors summarize and analyze the key research issues in what for years was known as the 'Forgotten War.' The book comprises three main thematic parts, each with chapters ranging across a variety of crucial topics covering the background, conduct, clashes, and outcome of the Korean War. The first part sets the historical stage, with chapters focusing on the main participants. The second part provides details on the tactics, equipment, and logistics of the belligerents. Part III covers the course of the war, with each chapter addressing a key stage of the fighting in chronological order. The enormous increase in writings on the Korean War during the last thirty years, following the release of key primary source documents, has revived and energized the interest of scholars.
