Synopsis

Korea: The Forgotten War 1950-1953, Vol. 3 - The New War
Before Vietnam, there was the Korean War -- the first American war in which peace arrived without a clear victory. This is the third of seven volumes in this series that examines the Korean War, a conflict in which tens of thousands of Americans lost their lives. In this episode, the tides of war shift again. On November 10, 1950, hundreds of thousands of Communist Chinese troops attacked across the Yalu River and inflicted heavy casualties on the surprised American and U.N. forces. Many people feared it might signal the beginning of World War III. Highlights of this video include newsreel and archival combat footage. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi

After the Communist North Koreans attacked the non-Communist South Korea in 1950, they quickly conquered most of the country, save for a tiny corner of the peninsula at the port of Pusan. World War II hero General Douglas MacArthur masterminded a dramatic amphibious landing at Inchon, sending his X Corps ashore behind enemy lines on September 15, 1950. By November, American and U.N. troops drove the North Korean forces almost to the Manchurian border. Victory seemed at hand.
