The Korean War was a war of firsts: The first jet war; the first war where it was not possible to unleash full power politically or militarily and the first battlefield of the Cold War. Lasting three years it took more than 2000000 military and civilian lives in it's bloody wake. Setting all the rules for East/West conflict during the nuclear age brought an unknowing world closer to an all-out atomic war than has ever been told. Historians battle veterans and archival footage reveal the pain glory and pathos of the war.
