Ghost Flames

Life and Death in a Hidden War, Korea 1950-1953

Ranked #56 in Korean History

A narrative, character-driven account of the Korean War that sheds light on the atrocities and hardships suffered by all sides in the "forgotten" conflict.
Although it was then perceived as a far-off and inconclusive engagement, the Korean War was a decisive and deeply destructive conflict. American forces dropped 635,000 tons of bombs over Korea --- more than the entire Pacific campaign of World War II --- and millions of Koreans perished. Today, mass graves still litter the countryside and two nuclear-armed forces stand at odds.
