Abstract:

"During his research at The Public Records Office whilst acting in his capacity of Historian for the National Ex-prisoners of War Association, Philip Chinnery discovered some recently de-classified files on the Korean War. They contain records of investigations into 1,615 atrocities and war crimes perpetrated against troops serving with the United Nations command in Korea between 1950 and 1953. 10,233 of the victims were American. Much of the material is horrific and had there been a clear victor there is no doubt that war crimes trials would have followed but, as it is, many guilty North Korean and Chinese soldiers remain at large and unpunished for their heinous deeds."--Jacket.
