Storyboard Text

  • 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.
