Americans view the Korean conflict as an American war in which the United States lost nearly 38,000 men. But above all else it was a war between Koreans that began years earlier, according to historian Allan R. Millett, in a discussion of his most recent book The War for Korea 1950-51: They Came from the North.

Millett is the recipient of the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for lifetime achievement in military writing. Among his books are Semper Fidelis: The History of the United States Marine Corps and A War To Be Won: Fighting the Second World War.
