The Korean War (1950-1953)

I. Overview

Korea was one of Japan’s many territories that were divided at the end of the World War II. It was divided along the 38th parallel. North of that line was controlled by the Soviet Union and became communist. South of that line had US influence and became capitalist and democratic. In June 1950, President Truman was told: “Mr. President, I have some very serious news. The North Koreans have invaded South Korea”.
