The Korean War

The Korean War is often referred to as a forgotten war since it was less spotlighted than two previous World Wars. However, it was very significant point in world history. Whether it was intended or not, it created the frame of the Cold War between two major powers, namely the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. The Korean peninsula is still divided between the North and the South as a remant of the Cold War. As discussed the transitional period between the liberation and the outbreak of war, the split national voice - largely triggered by foreign powers - ended up with tragic war.
Today, I would like to share 15 video clips -5 min each- which cover from the outset to the end of the Korean War. I am sure that it will provide you with an overview helpfully and intriguingly.
Please enjoy them!
