In May of 1945, at the end of WWII, communist forces invaded the Japanese held Korea from the north. The US then invades from the south. After seizing control, the two nations agree to a temporary border of the 38th parallel separating the Soviet back North Korea, and US backed South Korea.
On June 25, 1950 North Korean forces invaded South Korea, who recently had all of the US troops pulled out. The North Korean Army pushes deep into South Korea.
The US and UN side with South Korea, and send military aid to the invaded country. With their aid, the allied forces push up into North Korea, even reaching the Northern capital of Pyongyang.
China, fearing its safety with the US army so near, sends its own military aid to North Korea, and the US and UN are turned back all the way to the 38th parallel.
Peace talks begin in Geneva on February 1, 1951, but proves ineffective until the truce in 1953. The war changes little until 1953.
In 1952-1953, control changes hands. General MacArthur is fired by Truman, and Dwight Eisenhower is elected in 1952 with the platform of ending the Korean War. On July 27, 1953, a truce between the two countries is reached.
