Who says the war is forgotten?

Videos tell story of North-South conflict

The following is a tip on traditional Korean language and customs in response to a query from Mr. Andrews, who wrote to us from Seoul:

Q. Mr. Andrews:
I am a Westerner who has lived in Seoul for almost 18 months. Because of my new geographic location, I have become increasingly interested in the Korean War and all the factors that led up to it, in addition to the establishment of the Demilitarized Zone. There don’t seem to be many English language video documentaries available on the Korean War, at least not in conventional video rental outlets. I have also tried the local television stations without much success.

Can you tell me where I can purchase or rent English-language documentaries on the Korean War, and historic videos of both North and South Korea?

A. IHT-JAD:
A number of Korean War documentaries do exist and many of them can be ordered from www.amazon.com or www.snowcrest.net/jmike/militaryvideo.html. Among them are “Korean War Stories,” (2001), a 56-minute PBS home video narrated by Walter Cronkite, who takes the personal stories of those involved in the war and puts them into historical context.

“Battle for Korea,” (2001) gives a detailed account of the war and the history leading up to it.

“Korean War: Fire and Ice,” (1999) originally was a History Channel series and takes a look at the driving forces behind the conflict in great detail. It is available as a four-tape set.

“The Korean War: Our Time in Hell,” (1997) is a two-tape set that offers extensive combat scenes and a solid history of the conflict.
