The Korean War was fought from 1950 to 1953.


The active war was concluded by a temporary cease fire, albeit one which lasted over 60 years. In 2018, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to formally end the Korean war by the end of the year.[1]


Statistics vary widely about the number of killed and injured by the Korean War, but it is agreed to be in the millions.[2]
