Military and Civilian
Cost of the Korean
War
Remembering the Forgotten War
Video Activity
 From the video, what were some of the challenges
faced by the American soldiers?
 Why do you think the Korean War is often referred to
as the Forgotten War?
Challenges Faced By
Americans
 Harsh weather conditions – treacherous cold
and blinding snow-storms.
 Chinese soldiers had advantage as they were
more familiar with fighting in jagged
mountains and forested ravines.
Casualties in the Korean
War
This young woman
was killed moments
before, doubtless by
stray or inadvertant
fire from advancing
UN forces, as she
struggled through
soaking brush,
desperately seeking
safety for her small
family.
Hair still neatly
parted, she lies where
she fell backwards into
an irrigation ditch.
Her arms, no longer
able to hold and
protect, thrown wide in
death.
It is inescapable that the
terrible fate of the South
Korean capital and many
villages is the outcome
of a new technique of
machine warfare. The
slightest resistance
bought down a deluge of
destruction, blotting out
the area. Few people
can have suffered so
terrible a liberation.
