This is the first title in a new series, Twentieth Century Wars, and is published for the fiftieth anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War. Peter Lowe provides an overview of the origins, nature and aftermath of the war that was fought in the Korean peninsula between 1950 and 1953. Attention is focused particularly on the extraordinary first year of the war, which witnessed profound variations in the fortunes of both sides. This includes the initial North Korean attack, China's dramatic entry into the war, and the controversy surrounding the conduct and dismissal of General MacArthur. Lowe also discusses why the signing of an armistice in July 1953 failed to secure a full peace settlement. He brings his discussion right up-to-date with the developments in Korea since the death of Kim Il Sung in 1994.
Reviews about The Korean War (Twentieth Century Wars) (3):
Steelrunner
This book is essentially a diplomatic history of the war, including before, and a little after the fighting. After finishing reading the book, I checked back and judged that fewer than a dozen pages (less than ten percent of the book) discussed actual military operations. For example, Task Force Smith is not even mentioned, and the Inchon landing is covered in a couple of sentences. Similarly with the UN retreat after the Chinese intervention--from the book, I hardly knew it happened. Since I've read several books on the Korean War, I could fill in the blanks on the military moves, and I did learn much new about the diplomatic and political environment of the times. However, this book is in a series about 20th Century WARS, and I feel wars are more than just ten percent about fighting. Other books in the series certainly spend more time on combat. So my judgment is, if you want a good, brief introduction to the diplomatic background of the Korean War, get this book; if you want to learn something at all in depth about the military moves, you will need to get another book as well.

It's good to see the war from a British perspective. Content and style are superb. It is amazing that Lowe can pack so much information and depth of insight into such a small book.
Vut
The book lazily misinterprets information to draw grandiose conclusions. For instance, Lowe claims that NSC-68 would have made Stalin aware of the US' likely reaction to North Korean encroachments, but it was not approved by Truman until after the Korean War began. Lowe ridiculously claims that the servicing of Korean airplanes a month before invasion indicates a lack of cooperation between Stalin and Kim Il Sung. How does he logically go from A to B? The world might never know.
