The reason for this special edition is two fold, firstly many people have emailed me about my opinion about the present tension in Korea over the North Korean Atomic Bomb and missile programmes. A secondly to announce further future episodes which would place the Korean War in its historical context of the time, which explain why such was the fear of a Communist take over of Asia, that explain why American committed itself to a three year long war in Korea. The next series of such episodes is on the First Indochina War fought between a Communist Army and a western power, France which lasted from 1945 to 1954.. . .
