Day 1

The Korean War was between 1950-53 and was the result of the communist held North invading the American controlled South. South Korea then became a collection of allies fighting under a United Nations flag against the communist north. This was successful until the South pushed too far north and came too close to the chinese border which resulted in heaps of Chinese invading North Korea and pushing the UN allies further south again. The South put up a strong counter offensive pushing the North back again, this time to the 38th parallel where an armistice took place in 1953. This resulted in a 40 year period of great unease and continual tension until a non aggression pact was signed in 1991
