A companion book to the documentary produced by Wisconsin Public Television, Wisconsin Korean War Stories tells the story of the “forgotten war” through first-person interviews, photographs and letters.
These are the voices of green infantrymen who fought and failed to take Heartbreak Ridge, of farm boys from the heartland who survived three years as prisoners of war, and of small-town nurses in MASH units who treated the wounded and sometimes sent them back into the fray. From enlistment to front line combat, air support missions to dreams of home on moonless nights, Wisconsin Korean War Stories is an unforgettable collection.
Wisconsin Korean War Stories is a partnership of the Wisconsin Historical Society and Wisconsin Public Television, in association with the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs.
