Read & take notes on “The Course of the War” The Beginning of the War: U.N. Gets involved/Turning Point : The Change in Plans: China gets involved:
THE BEGINNING: - North Korea invades and completely runs over the South Koreans, easily taking the capital of Seoul. U.N. GETS INVOLVED: - Gen. MacArthur (USA) leads U.N. forces not good at first. Sneak attack on Inchon turns the tide and pushes N/Koreans back to 38th Parallel. THE CHANGE IN PLANS: - Goes from Containment to Rollback, pushing NK’s up to China…Gen. Mac. Threatens to use Nuclear weapons…Truman fires him. CHINA GETS INVOVLED: - Sends in 200,000 troops Nov. 1950 to keep NK as a buffer… this leads the war to become a stalemate…for 2 more years, ending in July, 1953 under Pres. Eisenhower.
