Description
Military Law Review

Excerpt
Excerpt: Two thousand seven hundred and thirty Americans died as prisoners of war of the Communist forces during the Korean Conflict. This astonishing death toll was thirty-eight per cent of the total captured. Was this just another unavoidable tragedy of war, or is there a lesson to be learned? To answer this requires a search-a careful look-for the causes of these deaths. First to provoke suspicion are enemy atrocities. Though it is true that miserable hardship prevailed and true also that many prisoners died victims of savage atrocities in Korea, the experiences related by the survivors raise some doubt that atrocities and murders alone, even substantially, account for this death rate.
