Allan R. Millett - The War for Korea 1950-51: They Came From the North
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
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.
