really liked it
bookshelves: korean-history, reviewed

I enjoyed the book but it gives tooooo much detail to 1945-1953 (especially the Korean War). This is understandable because of the author's specialty, but it's exhausting. Overall it provokes many interesting questions, whether you agree with his own arguments or not. According to premodern Korean history scholars, the first two chapters have many factual errors.
