The Korean War was a military conflict begun on the 25th of June, 1950 between North and South Korea, in which a United Nations force fought for the South, and China was on the side of North Korea. The Soviet Union was also assisting the North. The war arose from the division of Korea at the end of World War II and from the global tensions of the Cold War that developed immediately afterwards. About 5 million people died during the war, which finally came to its end in 1953. The Korean War wasn't widely covered by American mass media.
