- This film documents a war where neither side was victorious nor defeated; a struggle that came very close to thermonuclear war, and that still resonates in the geopolitical machinations between East and West. From 1950 to 1953 more than a million men fought under the United Nations flag, with most of the manpower from the United States. More Americans were killed in that war than in Vietnam. The boundary between North and South remains the most militarized zone in the world. The war is still shrouded in secrecy; questions remain about whether biological weapons were used. Korea: The Unfinished War combines archival footage, first person accounts with soldiers and civilians on both sides, direct quotes from Truman, MacArthur, Mao and Stalin, clearly showing their roles in the conflict. Atrocities on both sides are cited. In the years since there has been an uneasy truce, often broken, between the Koreas. But beyond that, the Korean War bequeathed a global hangover which haunts mankind today â€” biological weapons. The films investigates Chinese and North Korean charges that the U.S. secretly deployed these weapons during the war. This important film provides the background for today's fear of nuclear testing by North Korea.
