On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel
In August 1945, two young aides at the State Department divided the Korean peninsula in half along the 38th parallel.
The war was a defensive one a war to get the communists out of South Korea.
This was something that President Truman and his advisers decidedly did not want: They were sure that such a war would lead to Soviet aggression in Europe
Both sides were willing to accept a ceasefire that maintained the 38th parallel boundary, but they could not agree on whether prisoners of war should be forcibly “repatriated.”
Almost 40,000 Americans died in action in Korea, and more than 100,000 were wounded.
