Wars That Shaped The World
Wars That Shaped The World
At 4am on June 25th, 1950, the Land of the Morning Calm was shattered by the sound of artillery firing across the 38th parallel dividing Korea into north and south. Soon the growl of tank engines, Soviet-made T-34s, confirmed what was coming. Invasion. North Korea’s surprise attack on their ill-prepared southern neighbours began the first major conflict of the Cold War, a war of sweeping advance and hurried retreat whose consequence is still felt today.
