The Origins of the Korean War, Paperback Book

The Origins of the Korean War Paperback

Part of the Origins of Modern War series


The impressive Second Edition of this standard study incorporates important new evidence on the origins of the war from Chinese and Russian archives.

It reveals that Stalin encouraged the attack on South Korea, but also confirms that the original initiative came from North Korea.

Peter Lowe has also written an extended conclusion with a discussion of the Koreas in the late 1990s, and the challenges involved in securing their reunification.
