Great for what it is. A clear, simple explanation of the Korean War for teens or even younger. You get why, how, who, and where in a very digestable package with good maps and even photos that remind you of the real consequences of war (grieving soldiers, sad, sad, war orphans) without hitting you too hard. I learned a lot of new things actually. Really enjoyed this 25 min. read.
