This year marks the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean War armistice on July 27, 1953 which ended the three-year conflict. For over 60 years, the two Koreas have remained technically at war with numerous incidents to remind the world of the fragile peace which has existed on the peninsula.
My first book, War Remains, A Korean War Novel was more than a novel about the war and one its battles; it was also about the aftermath of the conflict and the ongoing search for the remains of more than 7, 900 Americans still listed as missing in action. The book I am working on now is about the aftermath of the Korean War and the vestiges of the conflict which remain to this day.
Additionally, I am preparing for a new history class at SolBridge this coming spring. The class is similar to the one I have co-taught with Dr. John Endicott in the past about Asian politics, but this year we are going to spend half the class talking about the two Koreas before looking at other countries in the region.
