70th Anniversary of the Beginning of the Korean War (June 25, 1950)

The Korean War is the Cold War’s first proxy war. It is also one of its bloodiest. It begins on June 25, 1950, when the North Korean People’s Army crosses the border of the divided peninsula. Two years earlier the Soviet occupation zone in the north became the socialist “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea” and the American occupation zone in the south became the capitalist, more western-oriented  “Republic of Korea”. A number of border transgressions follow. Both presidents had the peninsula’s eventual unification in mind, albeit each according to their own political ideology. North Korea’s attack in June of 1950 was a step towards its own idea of a unification.

Head of state Kim-Il-Sung had secured support from Moscow and Beijing in advance. The communist leaders expected a swift victory over the “decadent West.” But things turn out differently. The USA obtains a mandate for a military intervention from the United Nations. Initially North Korea conquers almost the entire southern part of the peninsula, before UN-troops in cooperation with the South Korean army retaliate and seize a majority of the entire northern part. This action triggers the invasion of hundreds of thousands of Chinese “volunteers”, who drive the opponents back behind the demarcation line of the 38th parallel.

General Douglas MacArthur demands the use of nuclear weapons and wants to expand the war to Chinese territory. US-President Truman dismisses these ideas, relieves General MacArthur as Supreme Commander in Korea and instead relies on armistice negotiations. In the meantime the conflict has grown into a trench and civil war with minimal territorial gains on either side but massive loss of human lives. The US army amplifies the bombing of North Korea and uses vast amounts of napalm for the first time. Almost every city in the north is bombed into a wasteland. Up to a quarter of the North Korean civilian population was killed. Overall casualties are 2.5 million North Koreans, 1.5 million South Koreans, 1 million Chinese soldiers and almost 40,000 GIs. The hopelessness of this war leads to the signing of an armistice three years after its started, but peace has yet to be made.
