The Korean War

(1950-1953)

At the end of the second world war North Korea was occupied by Russia troops. There was a boarder between North Korea and South Korea called the 38th parallel and American troops were in South Korea that was when the Japanese surrendered. When Russia pulled out of North Korea it left a communist government which was the newly formed  North Korean democratic peoples Republic. The Russians withdrew from North Korea in 1948. The United Nations decided on supervised elections in South Korea in 1950 and South Korea had an anti communist government so the Americans withdrew from South Korea. But in 1950 North Korea attacked South Korea which was not ready for such an attack and Seoul fell and North Korean troops took over all of South Korea bar the port of Pusan for gladly the American troops were still there supporting the Korean troops. The United Nations got pressed by the United States to do something. The United Nations sent a combined army of twenty nations to help South Korea and Australia was one of them and the United Nations Force was  under the command of General Douglas MacArthur. They hit back immediately and pushed North Korea back over the 38th parallel boarder. It did not stop there for General Douglas MacArthur tried to stamp out this communism all the way virtually to the Chinese  boarder and China did not like this and China stepped in supporting North Korea. The Australian troops fought as part of the British commonwealth contingent of the United Nation Forces. The Royal Australian Navy and planes of the RAAF were sent in from Japan as they were then part of the occupying forces at that time in Japan. On sept 1950 around 500 specific volunteers joined in the Australian battalion for  Korea and the British commonwealth brigade joined the US eighth troops to push up to North Korea. The Australian troops were being continually attacked by the Chinese and the worst battle was Kapyong River which was a combination of raids ,patrols and it was guerilla warfare with ambushes bad terrain few roads and mountains and it was cold,cold, freezing cold with the temperature falling like lead to 46degrees below freezing. Lack of sufficient warm clothing lead to frost bite with that 339 killed and 1,200 wounded. But it was important to stop the spread of communism. The war ended on July 1953 with a truce signed with the demilitarised zone between the two states called the 38th parallel.
