Brief History:

After World War II the Korean Peninsula (previously occupied by the Japanese) was divided at the 38th parallel with the North supported by Stalin’s Soviet Union and the South supported by the United States.  By 1949, separate Korean governments had been established, and both the United States and the USSR withdrew the majority of their troops from the Korean Peninsula. Just a year later in June of 1950 the North Koreans armed with Soviet tanks and weapons launched a massive invasion on the South. To prevent the spread of communism the United States intervened and on June 28th, 1950 the United Nations approved the use of force against the communist North Korea. The war lasted for three years and in 1953, an armistice agreement (truce) was signed, ending the “conflict” and reestablishing the 1945 division of Korea that still exists today. Over fifty thousand American troops where lost in this war.
