[edit] Information

Korea is often called America's forgotten war, yet history tells us that almost 150,000 American servicemen were either killed or wounded during this "police action." In this collection of newsreels and U.S. Government footage, you will relive America's experiences in Korea from the earliest days of intervention in 1950 to the signing of the Armistice in 1953.

[edit] The First 40 Days

On June 25, 1950, North Korean forces attacked South Korean positions south of the 38th parallel. U.S. President Truman ordered air, sea and land armed services to give support to the overrun South Korean army and people.

[edit] The Turning of the Tide

After six weeks of holding the last position in Korea, the Pusan Perimeter, the 95,000 men defending it were looking for a way out. The actions that followed appeared to turn the tide of the war.

[edit] The New War

The communists reached out for an easy victory in South Korea and came close to achieving it. Yet, when the will of the United States was tested, it showed to be strong. Until the most savage experience of the Korean War began...

[edit] Retreat and Dig in

After hundreds of thousands of Red Chinese troops came across the border, the Allies were forced to withdraw in such a scale it became known as "The Big Bugout."

[edit] The 38th Parallel

Under orders from Field Commander U.S. General Ridgway, the beaten and battered UN forces were able to turn the tables on the Chinese. The Communists started the New Year with a problem that affected the Allies only a few months earlier, a long and vulnerable supply line.

[edit] Ridgeways War

with what is now believed to be eight hundred thousand enemy troops slowly retreating, General Ridgway's new objective was to reach the Communist supply and communication network north of the 38th parallel.

[edit] The Peace Saga

The beginning of the end began when all parties agreed with the Red Cross to exchange sick and wounded prisoners as a 'gesture of peace." When Joseph Stalin died, the Allies were convinced that at long last, the Communists were looking for a peaceful solution.
