KOREA: THE FORGOTTEN WAR 1950 - 1953
At the end of World War Two, the Korean peninsula was divided. On the 25th June 1950 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army invaded the South. Fearing the spread of communism, America came to the defence of South Korea, calling on other United Nation countries to support them. 100,000 British servicemen and women served in the conflict.
Focusing on Veterans from the North West, this is the story of the Korean War in the words of those who were there.
