The first hot war of the Cold War, the Korean War is typically referred to as 'the Forgotten War.' But why? What was the impact of the Korean War on U.S. society?

In this course, we will examine the Korean War through American, Korean and Korean-American eyes and try to understand how different groups – for example, American and Korean civilians, American GIs – experienced the war then, how they remember the war, and how the Korean War continues to impact their lives today.
