This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Cold War - The Korean War. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Korean War was a war between North and South Korea, in which a United Nations force led by the United States fought for the South, and China fought for the North, which was also assisted by the Soviet Union. The war arose from the division of Korea at the end of World War II and from the global tensions of the Cold War that developed immediately afterwards.
A bitterly contested conflict, the Korean War saw the United States follow its policy of containment as it worked to block aggression and halt the spread of Communism. Fighting ebbed and flowed up and down the peninsula until the front stabilized just north of the 38th Parallel.
While the Communists took power in the north, the south became democratic. Both governments wished to reunite the peninsula under their particular ideology. After several border skirmishes, North Korea invaded south on June 25, 1950, opening the conflict.
After bitter fighting for many months the fighting ended but, no formal peace treaty was concluded. Instead, both sides agreed to the creation of a demilitarized zone along the front. Casualties in the fighting numbered around 778,000 for UN/South Korean forces, while North Korea and China suffered around 1.1 to 1.5 million. In the wake of the conflict, South Korea developed one of the world's strongest economies while North Korea remains an isolated pariah state.
