Before North Korea invaded South Korea the North took their time in planning their evasion on South Korea. Unfortunately, South Korea was outnumbered not only in manpower but firepower as well.

At the time of North Korea’s invasion of South Korea, the United States had military forces stationed in Japan and since the United States did not like North Koreas plans, the U.S. decided to aid South Korea to help avoid the spread of communism into South Korea.

Now with the aid from the United States, South Korea was able to intimidate North Korea. In October of 1950, the U.S. military crossed into North Korea and took over 135,000 prisoners of war this decreased the number of soldiers of the North Korean Army. Around the same time the U.S. was aiding South Korea China began aiding and supplying North Korea with their war needs. The United States tried bombing the supply routes that North Korea was using to receive these supplies from China, in turn causing China to intervene in the war.

After three years of fighting and the loss of many soldiers from all parties involved neither North Korea nor South Korea had won the war and decided to sign a cease fire agreement to bring some peace to both countries. Till this day the Korean War has not officially ended.
