46 of impressive Korean War snapshots

65
25 June 1950, the Korean War began, turning the two parts of the once united country into irreconcilable opponents. The Korean War is often called “forgotten,” but these photos will help to recall the events that took place more than 60 years ago.

In addition, a large number of weapons and military equipment. (AP Photo)

        Well, in white gloves there was no one there, but the South Koreans were more famous for the total mopping up of prisons.
        The Americans even had problems with this at the UN.

    Awesome photos, even more awesome comments to them, only the author did not subscribe. Probably the name Plohish, or Novodvorsky? As he persistently accentuates the atrocities of the communists, and just as persistently accentuates the heroism of the American guys (Austrian, Turkish) who bring peace throughout the world around the world. Interestingly, did they also make bracelets from their ears in Korea, or did they have this "fun" later?

    The Korean war in terms of the number of victims is second only to world wars. Our pilots there died 120 and 38 anti-aircraft gunners. The Americans, on the other hand, had to reconsider the tactics of using their super-fortresses after black Tuesday, October 30, 1951. In the very first seconds of the battle, 21 were shot down from 29 В12. Then, 200 more F44 were dumped in a dump with 4 fighter defenders 84 Mig. Soviet losses amounted to only 1 MiG15 shot down by Sabers already over the territory of China, where they had no right to fly. If our pilots also did not give a damn about the order not to cross the coastline and not to conduct battles over the sea, not one of the remaining B29 would leave, because they were all already in the holes and in every carriage were killed and wounded. Only a month after black Tuesday, 3 B29s flew out to bomb the crossings under the guise of fighters. All 3 bombers were shot down by MiGs. After that, they never flew over the fortress during the day.

      Of course, we must pay tribute to the courage of Korean and Chinese soldiers. Their losses were terrible. But it should also be noted that the main thing did not work in this war without which the United States did not fight, starting from the 2nd World War. This is air superiority. He was absent. MiGs fought on equal terms with F86 and as a result bombers couldn’t fly as in a parade or chase every truck as it was accepted by the U.S. Air Force in World War II, and daytime raids of strategic bombers ala Dresden had to be stopped due to outrageous losses. our 2th and 324rd air divisions. Chinese and Korean pilots did not have enough training and experience to fight well-trained American pilots.

        Dear SIT colleague, MiGs guarded only the northwestern part of North Korea (along the border with China), i.e. power plants, bridges, railways and stations, as well as the adjacent territory of China (which the Americans also showered with bombs).
        The rest of North Korea was actually bombarded and burned no worse than Dresden.

        Yeah. Therefore, the difference in living standards now in these countries is 50 times.


        Yeah. Therefore, in Cuba, child mortality is lower than in the United States and medical care is better, but it’s not proper to talk about how small and impoverished Cuba is ahead of the United States in the supply of medicines and the provision of medical services.

        Hmm ... But if amers and henchmen would leave them alone for 20 years, it is not known whose cars we would buy now - North Korean or South Korean.
        And then in Sevkorey, not everything is so gloomy.
        They also have something like a restructuring going on, but without selling their natural resources and plants.
        It is certainly heavier, but nature is better preserved.

      Cool series. In many things, getting to the point. And the series by director and actor Alan Alda (pictured second to the left) are generally masterpieces.

        Yes, the series is really wonderful. good There is something to laugh at, but at the same time there is something to think about. I watched several episodes several times, but still laughed until I fell over the eccentricities of Pierce and Co. wink

      At least part of the chronicles from Korea flashed there.

    If the North Koreans did not support:
    Uncle JOE (Stalin) by airplanes, tanks, ammunition and most importantly by pilots and military advisers
    Mao - cannon fodder, hell, they would have stood against the UN troops (read the Americans). It seems to me, after a maneuvering period of 50-51 years, the Americans themselves sought to drag out the war and maximize the exhaustion of the enemy. Indeed, in the event of a new successful offensive, the USSR could officially enter the war. The rush of tank armies to the English Channel would not be stopped by anyone, and there were atomic weapons.

    As for the war in the air, there was no equality. Yes, MIG was good against Saber, and especially Shuting-Star. Our MiGs could do nothing against the armada of the Air Force and the US Navy. Even if each of our MIG shot down a dozen Sabers. The only real success the B-29s left the game in the daytime.
    What equality if the Soviet MiGs could not work from Korean airfields, but only from safe Chinese. Korean communications were subjected to continuous air strikes. The only salvation is underground utilities and transportation at night.
    By the 53rd year, the war finally turned into a kind of World War I, all parties wanted to finish it as soon as possible.

      To begin with, the United States and the UN intervened in the internal affairs of another country, and North Korea defeated South Korea in a month and a half and occupied almost the entire territory of the country - with the exception of the Busan perimeter.

    Not like genocide, but he himself is. Unhappy Korea! Germany - the culprit of the Second World War has already united, and the fratricidal civil war essentially continues to this day! The horror is that Koreans are now ready to kill each other. A difficult way to overcome the consequences of the war awaits them. Correct long-term propaganda, and good neighborly relations - this is the way to unite them. This path is not beneficial to China, nor the Japanese nor the Americans. Therefore, for a long time they slurp this bitter mess.

      South Korea, after the war, was for many years ruled by a military junta, and more than once stormed its cities with the help of the army (it even reached the tanks), and how many citizens were tortured in the dungeons and I don’t want to talk.

        Well, most likely no more than in North Korea.
        Korea and its generally mentally calm and non-warlike people have become hostages to geopolitical interests.
        I would like to wish all the Korean people peace and harmony.

    In fact, during World War II, the US army did not fire a single shot to liberate Korea from the truly bestial, essentially Japanese occupation regime - Soviet troops and Kim Il Sung's guerrillas fought ... "Valiant" American troops, even after Japan's official surrender, allowed the former oppressors to "function" even before September 12. Further, more: the "allies" directly violate the previous agreements on the simultaneous withdrawal of troops from Korea and the holding of free elections (having brought in "President" Lee Seung Man, who "fought" the Japanese occupiers in America before). This is where the roots of the beginning of the Korean War and the current situation with the DPRK lie ...
