The Fight for Korea

ON JUNE 25, 1950, North Korea, backed by the Soviet Union and China, launched a well-planned assault against the Republic of Korea, which appealed for help from the United Nations. The U.S. immediately intervened with military forces then at sea and in Japan, a decision in keeping with the 1947 Truman Doctrine designed to contain Communist aggression around the world.
