A detailed map of the Korean War. Several silhouetted flying military aircraft are shown in formation. The map shows the Korean Peninsula from its northern border with Russia to the Korean Strait, flanked by the Yellow Sea and The Sea of Japan.

An inset map, situated below the central map of the Korean peninsula, details the area in the box in the larger map, along the 38th parallel from Yonan and P'anmunjom to Kansong. A number of hills and ridges that played significant roles in battles are labeled, including the areas of the Bloody Ridge, Heartbreak Ridge, Punchbowl and Christmas Hill. The map is bordered on three sides by the flags of the United Nations, and the insignia of a number of American combat units are handsomely displayed along the bottom border.
