Hello,

I recently picked up these booklets, which I believe were the property of a US soldier in Korea. Between the four of them, they give a really fascinating insight into the history of the war.

Korean Phrasebook
1945 edition.

A Pocket Guide to Korea
1950 edition.

Fight for America
1952 edition. A very jingoistic pamphlet indeed.

Cold Facts for Keeping Warm

Hope this is of interest,

BP

...horum omnium fortissimi sunt belgae! ("of all of them, the Belgians are the bravest!") - Julius Caesar

Remember the Belgians and Luxembourgers of the 3rd ID in Korea, 1951-5!
