Battle for Korea

The Korean War is often called "The Forgotten War." Americans were busy rebuilding their lives after World War II when the United States began its involvement in this first standoff of the Cold War. Determined not to let Communist Forces cross into the free territory of South Korea, the United States joined forces with the South in their fight against the Communist Chinese backed North. Misery and hundreds of thousands of casualties were the result before a truce was reached. The era is captured by filmmaker Dave Flitton, who juxtaposes archival film footage of the war with pictures of life in the United States in the early '50s, when Americans longed for things to be normal and safe in response to the horror and chaos of World War II. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter
