    Default The Korean War

    If we are going to discuss this war, its better for it to have its own room, no doubt soon to be filled with posts of titanic earth shattering battles that were the most vicious and deadly in all human combat.

    A good start is here:

    http://www.korean-war.com/

    For our favourite Korean battle so far I have found an appraisal by someone who was in Korea at the time. I find this to be a very honest look at both Chinese and UN forces at that time.

    http://www.rt66.com/~korteng/SmallArms/chosin.htm

    Of course from a personal point of view the Korean war gave us the 1st jet versus jet combat as the skies above the troops came to be known as Mig Alley:

    These should be enough to get us started.

    SO, to the Korean War then.......................................

    Best book I have read on Korean war is "The Edge of the Sword" by Anthony Farrar-Hockley.
    This covers the Imjin River Battle, where the 1st Bn Gloucestershire Regiment fought a vastly superior number of Chinese troops & the subsequent captivity.
    Things are going to get a whole lot worse from now on.......

    Well I see the battle of the Chosin resevoir as a heroic defeat as the author of the website says.

    Kudos to the guys that fought it though, but a clear defeat nonetheless.

    this is a post i got from a member from another forum; so this is not my writing here... :

    The Korean war was a pretty brutal conflict with fighting along rugged hill ranges. It was an ideological battle – communism vs democracy. I’m not going to go into the politics – I’m just interested in the fact that Greeks went and fought there with the Americans (and others), under the UN, against the north Koreans and Chinese.

    Greece only sent about 1500 personnel to fight, and 186 Greeks were killed. You would be hard pressed to find any recognition of the Korean War (relative to other wars) let alone some sort of remembrance of the Greeks that died.

    link to the 186 Greeks dead http://emb-greece.org/FALLEN%20HEROS.htm

    Greek troops in action.


    This link talks a little about how the Americans trained the Greeks to form a Dog squad during the war !!

    i no nothing about the korean war. but i looked up the death toll for the US military during the war, and it was about 30,000. I do not see how this is possible considering they fought Korea as well as China. how long was the conflict?

    Why not read the links posted and inform yourself, then you can come back with your opinions on it.

    Well, I think the Korean War was the first and probably the only UN war. Its a pity they cant seem to do today what they did then.

    Cant deny that. There were some hard fought battles in the Korean war too and some lessons to be re-learned for the men involved.
