This series is called Atlas of Conflicts, the big clue to how they approach the task of charting and explaining the Korean War. If ever a conflict was well characterised by maps, this is it as the North advanced in the summer of 1950 until only the south east of the peninsula was still held by the south. The map of the armistice line, showing very little net gain for either side, is a testament to war's futility. A good jumping off point for a more in-depth study of the conflict.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for a good overview 27 Nov 2013
By Jay L. Graham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Clearly written, good book for younger folks who only want a good overview, but not an intensive study for the real student of the war.

3.0 out of 5 stars General maps of the major campaigns 12 July 2011
By JONE S40 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding|Verified Purchase
As the title says, the small maps are for the novice historian, but not one looking for details. Satisfactory summaries of the major war campaigns.
