Background (Korean War. [2007, April 24]. In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 18:51, April 24, 2007 ):
The Korean War, occurring between June 25, 1950, and a cease-fire on July 27, 1953, was a war fought in Korea that was divided by the post-World War IISoviet and American occupation zones, with large-scale participation by other countries. The war began with the invasion of capitalist South Korea by forces in Communist North Korea in 1950 and ended as a stalemate between the sides in 1953.
The principal support on the side of the North was China, with limited assistance by Sovietcombat advisors, military pilots, and weapons. South Korea was supported by United Nations (U.N.) forces, principally from the United States, although many other nations also contributed personnel. When the conflict began, North and South Korea existed as provisional governments competing for control over the Korean peninsula after the Division of Korea.
In South Korea, the war is often called 625, from the date of the start of the conflict or, more formally, Han-guk Jeonjaeng (literally Korean War). In North Korea, it is formally called the Fatherland Liberation War. In the United States, the conflict was officially termed a police action the Korean Conflict rather than a war, largely in order to avoid the necessity of a declaration of war by the U.S. Congress. The war is sometimes referred to outside Korea as The Forgotten War because it is a major conflict of the 20th century that garners far less attention than World War II, which preceded it, and the controversial Viet Nam War, which succeeded it. In China, the conflict was known as the War to Resist America and Aid Korea, but is today commonly called the Korean War;, Chaoxian Zhanzheng - source: http://english.people.com.cn/english/200010/26/eng20001026_53620.html)
