The Statue of Brothers at the War Museum of Korea

The Statue of Brothers at the War Museum of Korea depicts two brothers, one a South Korean officer and the other a North Korean soldier, who encounter each other on the battlefield. The two brothers are shown falling into each others arms as brotherly affection and forgiveness overcomes the political realities of war.

Although usually not categorized as a civil war, the Korean conflict drove more than just a political wedge through the heart of the country and the continuing sentiment of a people divided is starkly exemplified in this statue.

Blogs: Kings of War

Blogs: Kings of War

The Department of War Studies at King’s College in London maintains a blog written by students and faculty. A fascinating read and a fantastic example of the potential of a departmental blog.

From the blog itself:

Kings of War is about strategy, widely defined.

We assign each of our posts to one (or more) of seven “columns” – the tabs at the top of the page. Alanbrooke is about British national security and defense. Clausewitz deals with strategic theory. Galula explores counterinsurgency. Grant, like the U.S. general and president, is concerned with American grand strategy. Mao covers insurgency and terrorism. Thucydides is history. Turing, as in Alan Turing, reviews cyberwar and the virtual dimension of conflict.
