History Book Club: The Korean War: A History
October 10, 2018
The History Book Club meets at 7:00 p.m. at the Cayuga Museum on the second Wednesday of the month. Participation is free and guests can come to any or all of the meetings.
October's selection is The Korean War: A History by Bruce Cumings. 288 pages.
For Americans, it was a discrete conflict lasting from 1950 to 1953. But for the Asian world the Korean War was a generations-long struggle that still haunts contemporary events. With access to new evidence and secret materials from both here and abroad, including an archive of captured North Korean documents, Bruce Cumings reveals the war as it was actually fought.
