- Program Description
Explores the domestic and international forces that contributed to the outbreak of armed conflict along the 38th parallel. Following Japan's defeat in WWII, the Korean colony was cut in half: the Soviet Union occupied the North; and the Americans the South. This decision was based on an assumption that subsequent events would mock -- that an independent and reunified Korea would follow in due course.
