There is hard evidence of at least 1,600 atrocities and war crimes committed against troops under United Nations command during the Korean War; but as there was no clear victor, those North Koreans and Chinese responsible for the brutality went unpunished. Drawing on files de-classified in 2000 and survivors' recollections, Chinnery examines the course of the war, the treatment of prisoners of war and the aftermath - 8,000 American and 100 British servicemen and thousands of South Koreans unaccounted for.
