Summary:
Korea Reborn: A Grateful Nation Honors War Veterans for more than 60 Years of Growth is a retrospective look at the Korean War and the years of prosperity that followed. The photos and text tell the story from the perspective of both U.S. veterans who served in the conflict, and the Koreans who prospered from the freedom left in their wake. Beginning with the events that led up to the war, through the ensuing battlefields across the Korean Peninsula, and ultimately the transformation from a war-torn country into a vibrant, prosperous nation, this book encapsulates why freedom is worth fighting for. To this day, the people of the Republic of Korea honor those brave veterans who served and sacrificed on their behalf. A reborn Korea is one that has risen from the rubble of war to be an economic world leader and a prized example of how freedom works. This is a story of a war remembered. - Jacket flap.

The Remembered War: While the Korean War is often referred to as the "forgotten war," this 60-minute feature documentary remembers and honors the men and women who fought, suffered, and sacrificed for a war-torn, distant land in desperate need of freedom. Amidst the backdrop of rarely-seen archive footage from the Korean War, veterans share their stories, recollections, and thoughts about the Korean War 60 years later. - Publisher.
