Just five years after World War II, the freshly divided Korean peninsula became a bloody battleground as North Korea invaded South Korea. The war quickly turned into a localized battle between the Communist powers (the Soviet Union and later China) backing the North and the capitalist, democratic, Western powers in the United Nations (primarily the United States and the United Kingdom) backing the South.
