The Hidden History of the Korean War
The Hidden History of the Korean War

An effort to demonstrate, on the basis of published evidence, that the Korean War is not what the United States Government and press have said it is. The author supports the thesis, which at times verges on the official Soviet line, that the South Koreans provoked the attack and were abetted by various "warmongering" American officials, who have since refused to let the war end. The obvious diligence which went into the book only makes the Bacon-wrote-Shakespeare argumentation the more painful.
