The Korean War: 1950-53

As North Korea remains in the news it is worth reading up on the history of the conflict between North and South.


 American soldiers made up most of the UN presence in the War against the North. Here we can see them bringing back captured North soldiers.


Lots of amazing photos of the 3 year conflict available online to view. Here was can see a child distressed in the street, who knows the back story? but we can assume it has been effected by the war.

Soldiers taking time out for a Christian temporary place of worship. Looks like a densely populated wood/forest, very hot. Alot of the American troops spent years fighting in such conditions, humid, unknown terrain, a living hell for many.
