KOREAN WAR JUNE 25, 1950 - JULY 27, 1953 The Korean War was a war between the Republic of Korea (South Korea), supported by the United nations, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), supported by the People's republic of China. Kim II-Sung The war begins: June 1950

On 7 June 1950, Kim Il-sung called for an election in whole Korea on 5–8 August 1950 and a consultative conference in Haeju on 15–17 June 1950. On 11 June, the North sent three diplomats to the South, who were later arrested by the South. Fourteen days later on 25 June 1950, the North Korean People's Army (KPA) attacked South Korea. On 28 June, South Korea bombed the bridge across the Han River to stop the North Korean army. However, Seoul fell that same day. North Korean soldiers then committed the Seoul National University Hospital Massacre. A number of members of the South Korean National Assembly remained in Seoul and 48 of them subsequently pledged allegiance to the North
The Battle of Osan, the first significant American engagement of the Korean War, involved the 540-soldier Task Force Smith, which was a small forward element of the 24th Infantry Division. On 5 July 1950, Task Force Smith attacked the North Koreans at Osan but without weapons capable of destroying the North Koreans' tanks. They were unsuccessful; the result was 180 dead, wounded, or taken prisoner.
