  • After WWII, Korea was split into two different sides: South Korea and North Korea. North Korea didn't agree with this, so they invaded in order to unite Korea. Since South Korea was allied with the U.S, President Truman grew concerned. He sent American troops over under General MacArthur and asked the UN for assistance.The North Koreans were pushed back, but the communist Chinese involved themselves resulting in a two year long stalemate. Eventually an agreement was decided and a demilitarized zone was set up between the Koreas. Over 2 million Chinese and Koreans died.
  • The war was centered in South and North Korea. South Korea was more under the control of the U.S, while North Korea was more under the jurisdiction of the Soviet Union. The Chinese involved themselves because it was so near to them that it was a threat.
  • President Truman and General MacArthur were a large figurehead for the Korean War. Truman began the American interference by sending in troops under the command of MacArthur. The Chinese fought on the side of North Korea with America and South Korea on the other side.
  • The Korean War
  • Four different countries were involved in the Korean War. First, South and North Korea were involved because North Korea invaded. North Korea invaded to unite the Koreas. America was involved because they wanted to protect South Korea. Finally, the Chinese were involved when they decided that South Korea and America were a threatening military presence that was too close to China.
  • Why?
  • The war started with the North Koreans invading South Korea on June 25, 1950. During the war, there was an almost two year long stalemate. The conflict finally ended when negotiators made a cease-fire agreement in July 1953, making the Korean War almost three years long.
