Overview

Synopsis

The Korean War: Fire and Ice, Part 2 - Triumph to Tragedy
This film is part two of a four-part documentary which follows the story of the Korean War, a conflict that took over 2 million military and civilian lives. The Korean War exemplified the politics of the Cold War, in which an essentially local conflict became the stage for a battle of wills between ideologies . With the invasion of South Korea by the North Communists on July 25, 1950, the lines were drawn between East and West. Unique problems developed. China became a major player in world politics. The United States dared not use its atomic weaponry and instead found itself embroiled in hand to hand combat with a peasant army, issues that would echo through the next decades in Vietnam and other far flung lands. The peace of World War II had proved fragile. These are the topics of this second video, presented with rare archival footage and first person accounts of just how close the world came to the brink of atomic disaster with the Korean conflict. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
