Bundle 7: Korean War

A collection of government documentaries that tell the story of the Korean War.

Overview of the Conflict:

THIS IS KOREA (1951) Color, 50 min.

Director John Ford’s documentary about the beginnings of the Korean War, after North Korean troops invaded South Korea and battled U.S., South Korean and United Nations forces. Notable in that, unlike many documentaries of the time, it’s in color, and no stock footage is used.


“A Motion Picture History of the Korean War” is a U.S. Department of Defense Information and Education film.


The Korean War from the U.S. Army’s “The Big Picture” television series, 1950-1975.


In this THE BIG PICTURE documentary film we watch as several companies of the 24th Division fight the Communist Chinese against great odds. They are fighting the first thrust across the 38th Parallel in Korea.


This film describes events in Korea from August 10 to September 20, 1950. We see how American troops fought to hold on the Pusan perimeter, the air support they received from carriers, and the march on Seoul.


From September 20 to October 20, 1950 United Nations forces struck hard against the Communist army in Korea. Footage shows the recapture of Seoul, the fall of the North Korean capital city, Pyongyang, an airdrop by the 187th Regimental Airdrop team, and the U.S. Navy battleship Missouri in action.


In this THE BIG PICTURE we see American soldiers battling winter cold, as well as the Communist Chinese, in Korea.


This film includes the Army’s 7th Division at the Manchurian border. Men of the 7th enjoy a hot Thanksgiving Day dinner on the banks of the Yalu River.


UN forces retreat below the 38th parallel, destruction of forts, air strikes against the enemy and strengthening of the battle lines.


Includes: Recapture of the Suwon; The 25th Infantry Division’s advance on Seoul; Attack on Hill 584. Captain Zimmerman interviews Lieutenant William Travis from New Jersey.


In spite of spring and rain our ground forces continue to push back the Chinese all along the Eighth Army’s front. The 25th Infantry Division crosses the Han River and U.N. forces reach the 38th Parallel.


Includes: The landing of our paratroopers near Munsan; The crossing of the Imjin River by Republic of Korean troops; The “one-two punch” of the 8th Army, the tank-infantry team crosses the 38th Parallel. A brief report on the activation of SHAPE in Paris with a few words from the former General of the Army, Dwight D. Eisenhower.


Includes: Establishing the Lincoln Line; The need for blood in Korea; A powerful air-ground assault against the Reds.


Our allied units throw a powerful counterattack against the Reds. Infantry, tanks, artillery, and air all combine to throw the Reds back to the North.


Includes: Scenes from the United Nations session in New York; Our negotiators at Kaesong.

U.N. LINE IS STABILIZED (July-Aug. 1951)

Includes: Our patrols in probing actions. The attack on Hill 1179. The return of Seoul refugees. And more of the ceasefire negotiations.

THIRD KOREAN WINTER (Winter 1952-53)

This issue of THE BIG PICTURE depicts the many aspects of our soldiers’ daily living in the Korean war zone during the winter period 1952-53.


The true reaction of the battle-torn GIs to the Korean truce has been well pictured by the cameras of THE BIG PICTURE. Many prisoners of war give their feelings about the truce and recall the war situation at the time they were captured. KOREAN WIND-UP is a capsule chronology of the Korean War.


In Korea, the aggressor’s challenge was met and turned back by the United Forces of the world’s free nations. Yet in the backwash of war there always remains a second challenge — the thousands of orphans, the millions of homeless, the countless villages and cities ravaged and almost completely destroyed.


Comparison of the life of the individual in the states to the soldier on the front lines of Korea. Despite the truce talks, fighting is still going on and we still have a serious need for men and machines. The contrast between the civilian’s life and the life of the soldier should bring the picture closer.


THE BIG PICTURE shows you what happens in one day of war. Excerpting a communiqué from the daily newspaper we show the fighting that lies behind the brief report of such a communiqué. CIVIL ASSISTANCE, KOREA

We approach this from the beginning in Korea when we had to control the civilian population; rehabilitation for tactical reasons. This is a very human, moving story and again points out our respect and concern for the individual.


Through the Korean Military Advisory Group, the South Korean Army has been able to build itself up to the fourth strongest Army in the world.


In this issue BIG PICTURE viewers will receive a firsthand account of how American artillery is employed in Korea. The film shows how American artillerymen fire ten shells for every one the Communists launch at or troops.


Graphically shown here is the treatment given our wounded in battle. We see the care a man receives from medics all along the line; from the time the wounded soldier calls “Medic” until he is release for duty.


Here is an exciting film documentary of the famous “Indianheads,” the men of the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division and the vital role they played in Korea.


At the end of World War II the 7th accepted Japanese surrender in Korea. In 1950 they return to the new war.

This is the story of the Army’s Psychological Warfare activities in the Far East Command, primarily as a tactical weapon in Korea.


We review the heroic and inspiring work of the Army Chaplain, especially the Chaplains who have served so gallantly with our fight troops.


The story behind moving men and supplies in Korea.


For this issue of THE BIG PICTURE camera crews have journeyed into the mountains of North Georgia and the swamps of Florida in order to bring the story of the U.S. Army Rangers to the television screens of America.


A documented report of Communist atrocities in Korea, with scenes just released depicting the horror and brutality of Communism. Includes interviews with returned prisoners of war who were eye witnesses to some of these atrocities and Major General William Dean and General Mark W. Clark.
