This is a short history of the "forgotten" war, best remembered for the interminable peace talks, the Truman-MacArthur clash and the television sitcom "M.A.S.H." This straight-forward account contains all skirmishes; strategies for containment of this "police-action;" and the now unfamiliar names of battles, hills, heroes and politicians--all of which are made to sound logical, intelligible and interesting. Narrator Richard Poe takes over the series from Nelson Runger, who read the first two books (WW I and WW II). The Asian names may be unfamiliar, but the narration is excellent, and difficult pronunciation sounds easy. Reading history can be dull, but the writing and narration here are uniformly excellent.
