History of the Korean War   

It is nearly 70 years since the Korean War began, yet the nations that struggled for control of the Korean peninsula have not signed or settled with a formal peace treaty. We'll explore how this tragic conflict happened so soon after the end of World War II, and why there continue to be two Koreas. How did a world superpower, armed with nuclear weapons that no other nation had at the time, need to fight so long and so hard against its foes in Korea and what did it cost? It was also a conflict where the new United Nations fought together as a combined team, to defeat what they saw as a universal threat to world interests. How did the Communist regime manage to retain what is now North Korea against this combined effort? What happened on those bloody battles for remote ridges and mountain tops of Korea? And how has this affected the subsequent policies and outlook of the U.S. and the United Nations?
