The Korean War: Fire and Ice Documentary Series Overview (1999)


This documentary series explores the historical facts, political entanglements and military struggles of the Korean War.


As Korea again regularly hits the headlines this documentary series examines the history of the brutal North/South conflict.

The Korean War was a war of firsts:

  • The first jet war;
  • The first war where it was not possible to unleash full power, politically or militarily; and
  • The first battlefield of the Cold War.

Lasting three years, it took more than 2,000,000 military and civilian lives in its bloody wake. Setting all the rules for East/West conflict during the nuclear age brought an unknowing world closer to an all-out atomic war than has ever been told. Historians, battle veterans and archival footage reveal the pain, glory and pathos of the war.
