Dear Ms. Cwiertka,

You might be interested  in looking at the catalogue of a recent, but 
small, photographic exhibition (still touring in the U.S.) that took 
as its theme just the approach to the Korean War that you indicate. 
The title of exhibit and catalogue (the latter has two relevant and 
worthwhile introductory essays) is Living Through the Forgotten War 
(ISBN 0-972970-4-0-1), it was edited by Patrick Dowdey and was 
published by Wesleyan University Press in 2004.
