Friday Roundup: News, Archives, and Useful Links on the Study of War and Society – April 5th 2013


The Friday Roundup is a weekly feature that offers a look at news, archive, and worthwhile links around the web on the study of War and Society. This week’s documentary, The Korean War in Colour, is much like the well known Second World War series and offers up an amazing collection of video footage of what is an often forgotten war. The content is not groundbreaking but does offer a good overview of the conflict and can help viewers understand many of the tensions which are still prevalent in Korea today. Images may be disturbing to some viewers so viewer discretion is advised.
