The National Korea: The Forgotten War

The National Korea: The Forgotten War

More than 25,000 Canadians went off to fight in Korea in 1951. More than 500 of them died there. Their names are now enshrined on a memorial wall in Brampton, Ontario. They were part of a United Nations force that went off to stop North Korea when it invaded South Korea. It was called a United Nations Police Action. It was a meatgrinder of a war that scarcely anyone remembers today. Through archival footage and the personal remembrances of those who answered the call and fought there, we explore a long-neglected chapter in Canadian history.
