The Korean War occurred on June 25, 1950 – July 27, 1953. The war was between the Republic and Democrat of Korea. It was basically over an agreement of the Allies on a conclusion of the Pacific War at the end of World War ll. The Korean Peninsula was ruled by an empire of Japan from 1910 until the end of World War ll. By September 1945 the American administrators divided up the Peninsula with U.S. military forces occupying the southern half and the Soviet military forces occupying the northern half. In 1948 the Korean Peninsula deepened the division between the two sides. The North established a communist government, and the South established a democratic government. In 1950 the Soviet Union boycotted the U.S. Security Council in protest at representation of China by the Kuomintang/Republic of China government, who had taken in Taiwan in defeat of the Chinese Civil War. The U.S. and other countries passed a Security Council resolution authorizing military intervention in Korea. The U.S. provided 88% of the 341,000 international soldiers that aided South Korean forces in repelling the invasion in the war. The Chinese forced the southern Allies to retreat in the 38th

With both North and South Korea sponsored by external powers, the Korea War was a Proxy War. From a military science perspective, brought along World War I and World War ll, which became a Trench War by July 1951.
