The Canandaigua Letters - William Winship

The Canandaigua Letters
A Memoir of the late ’60s
$ 34.38

by William Winship

In the early weeks of 1968, North Korean leader Kim II Sung gazed down across the Chinese mainland and — observing half a million US ground troops mired in Vietnam — decided that the moment had arrived to push the Americans off the Korean peninsula.  The Pentagon countered by deploying a handful of infantry battalions from the US Army’s Second Division along an eighteen-mile stretch of the Demilitarized Zone, fronting North Korea’s traditional invasion route.  What followed was a war that waxed and waned over the course of three years along the Korean DMZ — and so successfully did the Pentagon suppress all reports of this conflict that the story is still unknown today.
