Synopsis

"The slayer needs merely touch a button, and death is on the wing, blindly blotting out the remote, the unknown people."

Reporting the Korean War was not easy, as General Douglas MacArthur was quick to expel those who wrote things he didn't wish to see in print. In "Cry Korea," Reginald Thompson tried to set the record straight.

Though no newcomer to war, Thompson was sickened by the carnage caused by America's military might. "Cry Korea" is not only a powerful piece of reportage, but a cry for us all to examine the all-too-resonant issues of modern conflict and intervention.
