Korean Conflict

Forever in the shadow of its predecessor, World War II, and its successor, Viet Nam, the Korean Conflict has become a War forgotten by our time.  On June 25, 1950 the North Korean People's Army invaded the Republic of Korean, beginning the three years of civil war.  An armistice was signed on July 27, 1953.
