Episode #101
Outbreak
A nation divided; a world on the brink. The summer of 1950 sees the people of Korea trapped in the vice-like grip of the beginnings of the Cold War, as the two new superpowers of the postwar world flex their muscles - the United States and the Soviet Union. Already divided at the 38th parallel of latitude between a communist supported North and a United States sponsored South, the two Koreas are on a collision course towards civil war. Both the North's leader, ardent communist Kim il Sung, and the South's right-wing autocrat, Syngman Rhee, are determined to reunite their country. The inevitable happens on June 25, 1950, when 200,000 men of the North Korean People's Army invade the South. The attack is almost a complete success, but it is thwarted by a hastily gathered force under the auspices of the United Nations and led by the United States. For the next 12 months, the opposing forces - South Korean and their United Nations allies on one side, North Korean and their Chinese and Soviet allies on the other - march up and down the Korean peninsula in a series of attacks and counterattacks until cease-fire negotiations begin on July 10, 1951. However, the negotiations do not bring an end to the conflict, as the war drags on for another two years

Episode #102
Stalemate
The suffering continues; the world agonizes. While the diplomats wrangle and the negotiators argue, the fighting in the blighted Korean countryside continues. Korea's rugged landscape is festooned by barbed wire and trenches. Towns and villages lay in ruins, the hillsides and valleys are scarred by bomb craters and columns of destroyed armor. The lives of thousands of combat troops and civilians are sacrificed at the negotiating table as stories emerge of atrocities committed by both sides. There are accusations by North Korea about the inclusion of biological weapons in United States Air Force bombing raids, and the threat of the use of atomic weapons remains constant. Amid allegations of retribution and reprisals, one of the major issues at the negotiations is the sensitive issue of the repatriation of prisoners of war. Both sides are reluctant to release prisoners to an uncertain future. Eventually, the prisoner issue is resolved and a ceasefire is declared on July 27, 1953. After three years of war, with the country destroyed and at the cost of millions of lives, a divided nation returns to the status quo of 1950.
