A firsthand account of the American Jewish experience on the
frontlines. During the height of the Korean conflict, 1950-51,
Orthodox Jewish chaplain Milton J. Rosen wrote 19 feature-length
articles for Der Morgen Zhornal, a Yiddish daily in New York,
documenting his wartime experiences as well as those of the
servicemen under his care. As chaplain, Rosen was able to offer a
unique account of the American Jewish experience on the frontlines
and in the United States military while also describing the impact
of the American presence on Korean citizens and their culture. His
interest in Korean attitudes toward Jews is also a significant
theme within these articles. Stanley R. Rosen has translated his
father's articles into English and provides background on Milton
Rosen's military service before and after the Korean conflict. He
presents an introductory overview of the war which includes helpful
maps and photographs. The sum is a readable account of war and its
turmoil from an astute and compassionate observer.
