BATTLEGROUND KOREA Songs and Sounds of America's Forgotten War As North Korea's murderous young dictator, Kim Jong-un, races towards building a nuclear armed missile to challenge the world, BATTLEGROUND KOREA: Songs and Sounds of America's Forgotten War could not be more timely. 
Recent news articles describing the rising tensions on the Korean peninsula have reached back to the 1950s to explain the situation that we find ourselves in today - living in the shaky aftermath of en unfinished war. This collection takes the listener back to the beginning when North Korean troops crossed the 313. Panelist and started a war with the South in 1950.

Presented on 4 CDs with a book illustrated with numerous archival photographs, this collec-tion examines the war in a powerful and unprecedented way. Over 100 country, blues, pop and gospel titles cover aLL facets of the war - feat. The Louvin Brothers, Fats Domino, Jean Shephard, B.B. King, Gene Autry and dozens of other artists (even old Douglas MacArthur returns for a cameo!).

The accompanying full-color hardcover book is packed with information by music scholar Hugo A. Keesing on the songs and the artists who recorded them.
