The Korean War of 1950-1953 ended in a frustrating stalemate, the echoes of which reverberate to this day. It was the only conflict of the Cold War in which forces of major nations of the two opposing systems — capitalism and communism — confronted each other on the battlefield. And yet, in the sixty years since it was fought it has been strangely neglected, perhaps because no one was able to claim the victor’s spoils. 

The War That Never Ended details the origins, battles, politics and personalities of the Korean War — a war that has never ended, and for which no peace treaty was ever signed.
