Tom Hennessey, Professor of Modern British and Irish History has recently published a new book looking at the Korean War.
Britain’s Korean War investigates the UK’s experience as a junior partner in the only Cold War conflict where some of the main protagonists confronted each other on the battlefield.
The book assesses the strains within the ‘Special Relationship’ between London and Washington as well as British relations with the Soviet Union, communist China and the emerging New Commonwealth, particularly India.
The book relays a British desire to reign in American efforts to expand the war fuelled by a fear that the conflict might expand into a third world war that would expose the United Kingdom to direct Soviet attack. By the end of the war the British were concerned that it was the Americans, rather than the Soviets, who were the greater threat to world peace.
