Overview

In retrospect, the Korean War courted far less controversy than other wars such as Vietnam and Iraq, but it also checks in as one of the most brutal conflicts to involve the United States. Though it lasted only three years (1950-53), it claimed over two million lives, constituted the first major jet war, and embodied the first battleground of the Cold War.

This four-episode documentary program from The History Channel sets out to relay the full story of Korea, with a combination of archival footage, commentary by veterans and historians, and much more.
