Overview

The Korean War is known to many as the ‘forgotten war’. Resulting from a ‘tug-o-war’ between major world powers and the division of one country, the war would be a haunting legacy that would continue to plague Koreans and the United Nations for generations.

Despite an armistice, that legacy would create a tragic path that continues, even to this day, to keep two nations on the brink of war, where peace, it seems, is more about continued sparring than ending the heart-wrenching and sometimes inhumane existences of so many millions of suffering peoples.

With a history of varied offensives, battles, sieges, raids and operations, some of which were successful and others which did nothing to aid the situation, the road that led Koreans and others to war must be understood in order to plan a peaceful future that both North and South Koreans can one day enjoy.

What follows is a short history of the war, the key figures, and the battles and politics involved.
