This book tells the story of Canada ’s “forgotten war” in which soldiers in Korea suffered needless casualties and endured conditions that bordered on criminal neglect.  Brent Watson examines an Army totally unprepared for service in the Far East because military brass and defence planners in Ottawa insisted on viewing the Korean War through the familiar lens of the World War II European experience.
