The Korean War: Fire and Ice, Part 3 - Retreat from Hell
This film is Part III of a four-part series on the Korean War, the conflict that first saw the use of Cold War tactics. The powers of East and West became embroiled in a local war to promote political agendas. Archival film footage of front line battles is interspersed with first person eye witness accounts of some 50 Korean War veterans to tell the story of the battles that fought to repel the invasion of South Korea by communist forces of the North. Covered are some of the war's historic battles: Pusan, Inchon, Chosin Reservoir, the Iron Triangle, Heartbreak Ridge, and Pork Chop Hill. The viewer hears accounts of the hellish assault by the Chinese on Thanksgiving eve, and the ensuing retreat through the bitter cold frozen landscape. Truman and MacArthur clash. America comes close to using its nuclear force, and the world stands on the brink of disaster and destruction. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
