As part of our ongoing series of historical video-maps, from YouTube creator Suomi, we present: ‘Every Day of the Korean War.’ With the US and North Korea now engaged in an historic summit to attempt to peacefully resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis, it is worth reflecting on the war that started it all: the Korean War. Starting on the 25th of June 1950 when communist forces invaded South Korean and running until the 27th of July 1953 when an armistice ended hostilities, the following video details the changing front lines of the Korean War. The Korean War led to an estimated 1.2 million battle deaths, including 33,686 US soldiers, and over two million civilian causalities. Because only an armistice was reached, the US and North Korea technically remain at war to this day.
