Battlefields | Korean Conflict

The Korean War of 1950-1953 marked the first notable military clash of the United States and the Soviet Union as superpowers of the Cold War period.

On June 25th, 1950, elements of the North Korean Army invaded the South and thrust the Korean Peninsula into war. This prompted much condemnation from the West and resulted in a mobilization which involved the United States in, yet another, global conflict. This time however, the enemy was the West's one-time ally from World War 2 - the Soviet Union. What followed was a bloody years-long conflict that eventually ended in a shaky armistice which exists to this day and North Korean forces were soundly beaten in the initial thrusts - but eventually saved by Chinese involvement. The Korean War marked the first of several 'proxy wars' fought between the East and West.
