Korean War
(1950-1953)

World HistoryUnder the terms of the agreements with Russia and the United States, Korea was divided into two nations, a Communist nation in the north and a Democratic nation in the south. Tensions continued for years and eventually North Korea invaded. The United Nations reacted and sent troupes to support the south. China and Russia supported North Korea (China actually committed troupes). An armistice was agreed to  in 1953 but no treaty has ever been signed.
