Undestandably mainly an American view of the War.
The United States had every reason to be proud of their contribution to the action taken by the United Nations needless to say prompted by the U. S. A.
The D.v.D although repetative at times captures the feeling of intense cold experienced by the serving soldiers. also for those in U.K. who had no knowledge of General MacArthurs success and then demise it could make interesting viewing for todays Leaders!
For British veterans ,particularly those of 29 Brigade, I would recommend reading"To the Last Round" to be aware more fully of the British contribution.

I served in the korean war in the royal navy. unfortunately little or nothing was written about the UN navies activities during the war, In fact little was said about the British contribution. True the americans were the major contributors but remember the royal navy was in action, being first in the area, at the start of the war and suffered damage to the ship and injuries to personel (soldiers on boad at the time). However it is a well made documentary of the conflict so well done and it is an enjoyable DVD.

This is another quality History Channel release about the often overlooked Korean War. As another reviewer has pointed out this has a main focus on the US involvement in the conflict but the footage and overall production are excellent and it proves to be a very informative documentary. It's real worth though is the enormous amount of archival footage which make up the vast majority of the running time. Overall a superb documentary.

I know that we Brits were in Korea but if you have purchased this, you could be excused for thinking it was only the "yanks" out there. It is a bit one sided to say the least.

this was a very informative and well made film full of action and well put together a good look at the korean conflict but you would be forgiven for thinking the British were never there the film covers the whole of the war and paints A picture of general mc arthurs arrogance and commitment to continue the war resulting in his being sacked

This is a very good video for those who are interested in this conflict. The clear films and informative narration make this a very informative video and together with the price makes it a super buy.

The Korean War - this is really fire and ice. Very good presentation of conflicts, very informative and interesting. This war is not well known in modern history.

Very good video. Would have had 5 stars if it wasn't so US centric
