Home From Korea: The Living And The Dead
Shortly after the recapture of Seoul by US forces, a cheering crowd welcomes 1,500 Marines home from the battlefront as they disembark at Oakland. But in nearby San Francisco, the city is saddened with the arrival of the first war dead returned to their native soil.
General MacArthur and his field commander Gneral Matthew Ridgway view the battle in Korea as UN ground forces drive north towards the 38th parallel. As they struggle to advance, the troops encounter miserable conditions ranging from the driving snow of the harsh Korean winter to deep mud in which men and tanks become mired. The Korean war is becoming increasingly costly and unpopular in 1951 as an exasperated America hovers dangerously close to a third world war.
When North Korean Troops cross the 38th parallel and invade South Korea, the United States is the only country to enter the area in force, American troops joining those minimal units of the international police force" sent by the United Nations. With the entry of Chinese Communist troops into the action, the war takes a bad turn when the enemy forces a retreat of United Nations forces. American jet fighters engage in spectacular air battles with the Russian-made jets used by the invaders, but fail to prevent the capture of Seoul by Chinese forces."
