Publishers Description: "The Korean War broke out at dawn on June 25, 1950 all along the 38th parallel line across the Korean Peninsula. It began with the sudden invasion of South Korea by the North Korean troops, without any declaration of war. On June 27, two days after the breakout of the War, the United Nations Security Council unanimously condemned the North Korean invasion, and passed a resolution to help the Republic of Korea by sending UN troops, for the first time since it was established in 1948. The 63 UN member countries had responded to the UN resolution. Among them, 16 countries dispatched fighting units while five countries provided military field hospitals, and the other countries sent war supplies. The Korean War resulted in two million casualties of the Korean people. At the cost of such precious human sacrifice, the Republic of Korea has achieved great success as one of the top ten economies in the world. This particular book is contributed to keeping the record of those processes of the Korean war, which was a world war being forgotten with time.
