27th July 1953


Recommended Posts

The Korean War armistice is signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of bloody fighting. United Nations and South Korean forces suffered some 500,000 killed, wounded, or missing in action, while Chinese and North Korean losses were at least three times that number. The armistice, though it has prevented fighting in Korea for 50 years, was but a cease-fire. Korea remains, as it did for most of the war, sharply divided along the heavily fortified 38th parallel.
