[edit] Blood on the Hills

Norm traces the origins of the Korean war, from the North Korean Invasion in June 1950, the battle for the Pusan Perimeter, the arrival of the Canadians, their first actions and the stand of the 2nd Patricias at Kapyong in April 1951.

[edit] Strange Battleground

Norm follows the battles of the 25th Canadian Infantry Brigade in May 1951, to Chail-Li, the advance to the Jamestown Line; the Peace Talks at Pamunjom, and the Chinese offensive against the Canadians at The Sangok Position, and the tremendous defence of the Saddle at Hill 355 in November 1951.

[edit] War of Patrols

Norm takes the viewer over the battlefields of 1952-53, when the war changed from a war of movement to a stalemate, as both sides dig in and await the final outcome of the Peace Talks. It becomes a deadly cat and mouse game of waiting, watching and patrolling, a war that costs 250 Canadian lives.
