Korea the war at the 38th parallel - the Chronicle of a breach of the peace made by using recordings of "Republic pictures". The eyes of the world look to Korea. Since the morning of June 25, 1950, when Communist troops in sudden, brutal attack raided the Republic of Korea, is the peninsula between the Japanese and the Yellow Sea in the world spotlight.
The history of this war is a cautionary example of communist methods. It is the story of a just as well prepared as unprovoked breach of peace.
When the second world war ended, also the decades of Japanese rule in Korea ended. On the Yalta and Potsdam conferences, the United States, Great Britain and Soviet Russia had decided that Korea should be now free and independent.
After an agreement between Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin, we should briefly occupied the country definitively eliminate the Japanese rule. The American troops in South Korea, the Soviet occupation in North Korea. The 38th parallel was set as the demarcation line between the two armies of occupation.
The United Nations Meanwhile prepared for the establishment of a Republic of Korea. Free elections have been written off, but could be held because of the Soviet-Russian rejection only in the South of the country. For the first time in its history, South Korea received a Government under the leadership of President Syngman Rhee emerged from free choice.
The American crew transferred its functions to the new Government of the Republic of Korea and left the country. 32 Nations recognised the new State. Shortly thereafter, the so-called "Democratic Republic of Korea" in the life North of the 38th parallel was established by the Communists. The Russian troops withdrew. But the influence of Moscow remained.
From that moment on, the 38th parallel was a troubled borders. The Korea of the United Nations Commission was witness of permanent border incidents, as a result of ongoing, Communist burrowing.
The Republic created in free elections could not be in the UN, because Soviet Russia prevented the admission by his veto. Communist agents and partisans came over the border and disrupted the development and life in the free Republic. There were frequent riots.
The UN Commission was regularly reports to the United Nations. The United States granted the Republic of $125 million to the economic development of their country.
In North Korea, a national police force and a national army was raised. The State power was transferred to Soviet-trained officers. The Communist army was equipped with Soviet weapons and aircraft. The training of indigenous soldiers was carried out by Soviet instructors.
On October 25. June the unimaginable happened: heavily armed assault - breach of the peace - war!
The vast superiority of the Communist army showed Right away, that the attack was prepared in. Tank dimensions and carefully equipped troops crossed the 38th parallel.
Right away, the United Nations convened to an extraordinary session of the UN Security Council. The Soviet Russian delegate did not participate. The historic report of the UN Commission on Korea described the Communist approach as a non-provoked attack Act. The Council urged the attacker to set the fire.
The Communists ignored this instruction.
President Truman authorized the American armed forces to grant the jeopardized Republic weapon help Right away.
The Security Council called on all Member States to assist the Republic and to contribute to the restoration of peace and security. 52 States agreed to this resolution, 52 Nations against the Communist overt.
The first American air and naval forces intervened in the fighting. Then, the first land forces were deployed. A few battalions against an overwhelming superiority.
Because the forces of the defence were still weak, and not to the substantive requirements of a war. The Communist attack was long and well prepared. The huge superiority, conquered new parts of the country. Slowly but the force of the Defense grew.
United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the Netherlands have had parts of their fleet.
President Truman addressed a message to Congress and the nation. He called for 10 billion dollars to the end of the Korea war and the assurance against any possible aggression in other parts of the world.
(Original sound: "we know that the cost of freedom is high.) But we are determined to preserve our freedom no matter what the cost".)
The retired American fleet was mobilized. Protective covers fall of cruisers and aircraft carriers. Convener and volunteer sign up in all parts of America. Johnson Secretary of Defense sends the flag of the United Nations to the Korean front.
General MacArthur, who was appointed the Commander of the UN forces, receives the flag in his headquarters.
Continuously go supplies and fresh troops in the far Eastern theatre. Lieutenant General Walker takes over command of the land forces.
Right major general Dean, who is now missing. Each front section is highly competitive. The terrain is difficult and confusing. The first American wounded are evacuated. American planes are without a break in service.
After the Republic of Korea, the Communist grip came overnight. A peaceful world was not prepared for this Act of violence. But now the world knows her enemy and his methods.
New relief efforts of the members of the United Nations will be announced. And the American forces grow from day to day... just like in World War II.
The war on Korea inexorably goes on - a conflict in the far East, its political impact expressed President Truman with the words: "has the free world by the United Nations indicated that will meet any aggression with violence." This is the crucial importance of the events in Korea."

The troops arrive directly from America; the units which so far had been thrown into the battle came from Japan.

Troop transports with infantry. Reinforcements arrive day and night and heavy weapons are now being thrown into the battle.
