Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of Korea, then pay attention...

The Korean Peninsula today is divided into two, but there was a time when this peninsula was divided into many states. Over the course of time, and besieged by expansive transient dynasties outside of this modest piece of land, many clans and tribes overran their lands. Of all those malicious and greedy potential overlords, none managed to prevail.

The soil is rich with the blood of the people who made Korea happen, and it is the Korean people who rose victorious among the maelstrom of dead empires led by hated tyrants and wars fought by people in lands far beyond their own. The Koreans are survivors, known for their persistence and courage.

In History of Korea: A Captivating Guide to Korean History, Including Events Such as the Mongol Invasions, the Split into North and South, and the Korean War, you will discover chapters, such as:

  • Land of the Bear
  • The Dragon of the East Sea

  • The Joseon Dynasty of Goryeo
  • Foreign Invasions

Insightfully fascinating

This audiobook shows much data that has helped me understand the Korean War. It gives information that is more comprehensive than any article on the subject. I would highly suggest it to anybody doing Level History or anyone involved in Asia.

Excellent history. Well researched.

An unbelievable history that was very enlightening. I’ve got 2 history standards but I’ve not been shown to the horrors of this catastrophe by our civilian & service leaders during that period in the history of our nation.

Very good insight into a forgotten war

This audiobook is about the history and hidden true story of the Korean war. I fully recommend you audible this story. Yes, however in south Korea there are many struggles to delete this history by pro-Japan and pro-USA party for over 70 years.

I love it

These decisions had results which in turn gave birth to more results that bend and change lives and decision making. A lot of the choices reflect a total lack of knowledge of the region but a powerful belief that they are "right". And hence, totally wrong.

high level analysis

This is not a military audiobook. Says little about the movement of troops through the Korean War, but says much about the thinking and plans of the leaders on both sides as they fight, somewhat tragically, to reach their given goal of joining a nation arbitrarily divided in two by the victors of WWII.

I found it valuable

The Korean War by Captivating History is an extraordinary audiobook because it includes Japanese, North Korean, Chinese, and Soviet views from earlier unknown sources.
