    I think, the author had picked a wrong title It should have been A Diplomatic History or Diplomacy Behind the Curtain No discussion of the military action is compensated by a superb analysis of diplomatic efforts aimed at stopping the bloodshed in Korea UN has never been efficient in preventing or combating wars The Korean conflict was UN s first serious test which it failed, and Stueck describes how and why.

    It s a history of international relations surrounding the Korean War so the book does not discuss what actually was going on in the Korean peninsula Highly recommended to those who like reading diplomatic history It s a good book but just not my taste.
