- A cry rang out, June 24, 1950, from a small country half way around the world and America listened. Korea was engaged in a civil war as an attempt to keep North Korea from thrusting its influence on South Korea. Communist Russia and China were strong supporters of the North, and to keep Communism contained the United States sent troops to the South.
- Korean War is often referred to as the forgotten war. There exist no monuments in Washington D.C. to acknowledge the thousands of American soldiers who fought valiantly and died for their country’s political interests. There are no annual parades, and little information in text books to shed light on the war.
- Begun as a war between South Korea (Republic of Korea) and North Korea (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), after the North’s invasion of the South, the conflict swiftly developed into a limited international war involving the U.S. and 19 other nations.

- The UN declared that elections should be held throughout Korea to choose one government for the entire country. The Soviet Union opposed this idea and would not permit elections in North Korea. The people of South Korea elected a national assembly to set up the government of the Republic of Korea.
- The situation facing the American leaders in Washington D.C. and also in Tokyo was very much the same. They both foresaw the likely dissolve of the South Korea army and government, and therefore the imminent engulfing of all Korea into a communist state.
- The Korean War was a war that at the time, many Americans thought was a worthwhile battle. Latter, people would come to believe that the war was not as important as they believed. The Soviet Union would fall and communism would not be a threat in world?s views.
- Many events make up the entirety of a conflict between opposing forces. More specifically, there can be many different parts to a war. There is not necessarily only one struggle in a war. In the Korean Conflict, the war can be separated into three distinct and equally important stages, each with their own purpose: the North s offensive, the South s offensive, and the stalemate.

- Two Korean soldiers– one from Sariwan, North Korea, and one from Chongju, South Korea– stare intensely at one another, watching each and every move. They are in the DMZ, a 4 km wide band stretching across 250 km of deserted land, known as the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas.
- The pounding of shells, the mines, the death traps, the massive, blind destruction, the acrid stench of rotting flesh, the communal graves, the charred bodies, and the fear. These are the images of war. War has changed over the centuries from battles of legions of ironclad soldiers enveloped in glimmering armor fighting for what they believe to senseless acts of guerrilla warfare against those too coward to be draft-dodgers.
- They are given physicals periodically. The weak taken to extermination camps a.k.a. crematoriums. As I close my eyes I can visualize women, children and even men anguishing cries in the rooms and their screams sending a chill down my spine.Those that pass physicals are on prescribed diet,turn-ups and water only a matter of time before they fail physical.
- In the wake of the temporary partitioning of Vietnam at the Geneva Conference of 1954, the Dwight D. Eisenhower administration was determined to do what it could to ensure that South Vietnam remained out of the hands of Communists.

- In the novel The Killer Angels, Mr. Shaara?s historical accuracy is unquestionable. He has written this fabulous (Pulitzer Prize winning) novel. Although the heroic suicidal charge of the 10th Minnesotans on the second day of the battle was left out, Shaara focuses on Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and the 20th Maine which makes up for the lapse.
