This documentary tells the fascinating story of General Douglas MacArthur's amphibious landing at the port of Inchon behind enemy lines. This brilliant move led to the liberation of the South Korean capital, Seoul, and a dramatic reversal in the course of the war. Previously victorious North Korean forces were out flanked and forced into a pell-mell retreat back north of the 38th Parallel, almost to the Siberian border. The 1st Marine Division, backed by the 7th Infantry, US Airborne and ROK forces surprised the communists at Inchon, making the most of naval and air superiority. All aspects of the assault on Inchon harbor and the subsequent taking of Seoul are covered in detail with exciting combat photography and illuminating strategic and tactical maps showing unit operations.
The Battle for Korea DVD 1
* A Motion Picture History of the Korean War This documentary, produced by the Defense Department, is a concise, easy to grasp history of the war told through maps, memorable"you are there" images and eye witness accounts. You'll learn about strategy and tactics while you see the dramatic ebb and flow of the conflict from the North Korean invasion through the final cease fire.
* The 24th Infantry Division in the Korean War The 24th Division was the first US unit rushed into the conflict as a stop gap to slow the Communist advance and buy time for re- enforcement to arrive. In a series of extremely costly engagements near Osan and in Taejon that cost more than 3,600 casualties in 17 days, they delayed the enemy long enough for the defensive Pusan perimeter to be formed in the South. Then they fought major engagements through the rest of the war.
* The 2nd Infantry Division in the Korean War The 2nd Division was one of the first units to arrive in Korea to reinforce the 24th on the Pusan Perimeter. After the breakout, they fought in some of the bloodiest and hardest fought battles of the war, including the capture of the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. When the War ground on during negotiations, they fought a series of storied engagements including "Old Baldy," "Pork Chop" and "T-Bone" Hills, and "Heart Break Ridge." One of the most decorated units in the war, they received a Presidential Citation.

Much of the film focuses on the all important role of very close air support between Navy and Marine Air Wings and combat Marines on the ground, a subject that Ford also explored in a World War 2 picture he directed during the same period, "Flying Leathernecks.It's another classic John Ford film.
