Korean War Stories (2001)


A history of the “Forgotten War”, the Korean War, as told by the American veterans, both famous and unknown, who fought there.


Korea vets remember “the forgotten war.” Host Walter Cronkite provides an overview of the 1950-1953 conflict, and the vets provide emotional impact. “It was a nasty, brutal war,” recalls former secretary of state James Baker, who served in the Marines. Fellow vets John Glenn, Charles Rangel and Ted Williams get down to specifics. Willie Nelson, who served stateside, sings excerpts from a protest song. But that’s a minority opinion. Says Colonel Carl Sitter (USMC-Ret.): “It was a forgotten victory.”
