The June 25, 1950, North Korean Invasion of South Korea: The Rest of the Story



Several years ago I wrote a lengthy (49 pages) monograph with this title, drawing on non-mainstream historical research which makes the case that President Harry S. Truman, aided and abetted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, facilitated Kim Il-sung's "surprise" invasion of North Korea.

While many historians hold that the genesis of what America faces today from North Korea's nuclear threats began with the 1950 invasion, the fact is that it began at least five years earlier when the Soviet Union--new to the Pacific War--took the Japanese surrender in Manchuria.
