Publisher's Summary

The Korean War, which began in 1950 and ended in 1953, is not considered one of the major wars of the 20th century. However, in reality, it was profoundly impactful on global history. As an early crisis of the Cold War, it set important precedents for how conflicts would be handled during this era. It has also shaped Korea’s history for more than half a century. 

You will learn about:

  • Korea before World War II
  • The end of World War II and the Cold War context
  • The Korean War begins
  • The United States enters the Korean War
  • The Korean War escalates
  • Stalemate at the 38th parallel
  • After the war

It was destructive and brought many atrocities on both sides. What is more, still to this day, Korea remains divided along the 38th parallel, and the people of North and South Korea live very different lives.
