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.

Could the fragile armistice in place since 1953 he shattered at any moment? No one knows, but 29,000 U.S. troops stationed in South Korea are, as their motto guarantees, "Ready To fight Tonight." BATTLEGROUND KOREA: Songs and Sounds of America's Forgotten Was is a stunning, years-in-the-making anthology of the Korean War's musical Legacy. 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!). 

Additional rarely heard documentary ma-terial includes patriotic Public Service Announcements, field news reports and over a plea for blood donations from Howdy Doody! 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. The book also features a condos history of the war including many never-before-published photographs from the battlefield.

This is the mast comprehensive anthology of music inspired by the Korean War ever re-leased. Get ready to go beyond M*A*S*H and experience the raw sights and sounds of America's forgotten war.
