The Korean War collection contains Chinese propaganda leaflets printed during the Korean War (1950-1953), restricted Chinese military maps, books of photographs, post-war North Korean propaganda, songs, a photograph album, posters, comic books, and illustrated propaganda created during and shortly after the Korean War. The leaflets in the collection include both propaganda printed in English that Chinese military forces dropped over American lines and also leaflets printed in Chinese directed at Chinese soldiers fighting in the Korean War. The collection also includes 69 books published in China and North Korea during the Korean War. Much of the propaganda in the collection promotes the heroism of the soldiers fighting for the North Korean side and the undying friendship of the Chinese and Korean peoples.
