Ethiopia: History of Participation in the Korean War

South Korea's Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs has posted online in English a 205 page history of Ethiopia's participation in the Korean War titled "The Eternal Partnership: Ethiopia and Korea."  This account documents the actions of the brave Kagnew Battalions that fought in Korea between 1951 and 1954.

This research came to my attention in, of all places, the January-March 2014 issue of "Menelik's Journal" published by the Ethiopian Philatelic Society.  This is an essential journal for all collectors of Ethiopian stamps.
