On June 25 1950, the North Korean People’s Army launched a surprise attack on the Republic of South Korea. Based on author interviews, personal narratives, newspaper accounts, and letters, this is the story of the Irish in Korea.

Author signed.

Within days American ground troops were committed to Korea and with them many Irishmen, recent emigrants to the US. Several weeks later more Irishmen arrived as Britain committed a brigade to the UN cause. The Korean War dragged on for another three years resulting in millions of casualties. This is the first book to access the involvement of Irish soldiers in the armed forces of America, Britain and Australia or as soldiers of Christ.

The book includes thirty-two photos, a map and a list of all soldiers and civilians from Ireland killed in the conflict.
