The Korean War was one of the most significant conflicts of the twentieth century. Coinciding with the 60th Anniversary of Australia’s landmark battles in Korea, at Kapyong in April, and Maryang San in October 1951, the Australian War Memorial is convening a major international conference including leading international military historians.

Professor Robert O’Neill, Australian Official Historian of the Korean War and former Chichele Professor of History at Oxford University is keynote speaker. The conference includes a reception at the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Canberra and an optional dinner on the first day of the conference. A must for Cold-War history buffs!
