Korea: The First Cold War
After Communist North Korean forces invaded the South in June 1950, a battle for Cold War supremacy broke out in East Asia.
It was a harsh and brutal conflict that claimed over four million lives and inflicted incredible cruelty on the Korean people.
The memories of this war have often been buried between the fervour of World War II and the first televised war in Vietnam.
This programme tells the forgotten stories from the unsung heroes who were deep in the trenches.
