The Front Line
I recently reviewed the Korean war film The Front Line for Flick Feast:
In terms of coverage at the UK box office, the Korean War is not particularly well known when compared with other wars such as Vietnam or the two Gulf Wars. The conflict raged primarily from 1950 to 1953 and in effect marked the start of the Cold War. The Korean peninsula has been occupied by the Japanese Empire since 1910 but following their capitulation at the end of World War 2, the peninsula was divided along the 38th Parallel and the North half was occupied by Soviet Russia, the South by the United States. In the years following the end of the World War, the Northern half installed a Communist government and the South a Capitalist one. Then, in 1950, the North invaded the South which led to a deadly war which ensued for several years. In effect this regional conflict became the first flash point of the broader clash of ideologies which came to dominate international politics for the following four decades.
