The Armed Forces of North Korea Paperback / softback
Part of the Armed Forces of Asia series
Despite frequent predictions of imminent collapse, the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea continues to pose a threat to South Korea and remains a destabilizing element of north Asia.
The armed forces continue to be the core of the regime, deploying formidable paramilitary and internal security forces against its own people, maintaining a wide network of intelligence services throughout the region, and developing an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.
This book provides a detailed account of the links between the regime and the forces, and then describes each wing: air forces, naval forces, ground forces, paramilitary forces, internal security and intelligence reviews.
