The conflicting agendas pursued by Americans, Soviets and different groups of Koreans during the subsequent five years made the Korean peninsula ripe for military conflict by In Korea was a nation with deep political, social and economic divisions. Many of these divisions had been created during the previous thirty-five years when the country had been colonized and governed by Japan. At the dawn of the twentieth century, Japan had been determined to emulate the Great Powers of Europe by creating its own empire.
The Japanese had long maintained that they had a special interest in Korea because of its geographical proximity to Japan. With much of the rest of the world already carved up by Europe and the United States, Japan annexed Korea in Thus, a nation which had existed independently for centuries fell under the control of a foreign power. The Japanese government had sought to accelerate the processes of economic growth and industrialization in the Korean peninsula in ways that would strengthen Japan.
Japan also needed Koreans who could serve as judges, administrators, and police in its colonial system. With few other life chances available, some Koreans made pragmatic decisions to assume these roles, even if it meant supporting Japanese imperialism either directly or indirectly. While some Koreans benefited in large and small ways under Japanese imperialism, however, other groups of Koreans suffered enormously.
This was especially true during the years between and when Japan attempted to mobilize Korean society to support Japanese involvement in World War II. The Japanese imperial government forced hundreds of thousands of Korean peasants to labor in war related industries.
This included 1. When Japan surrendered its empire at the end of World War II the Koreans who had born the heaviest burdens during the Japanese colonial period naturally looked to create a more equitable socio-economic order. The majority of Koreans were in favor of dramatic change. They wanted land to be seized from large land-holders and redistributed to the peasants.
They wanted an eight-hour work day and they wanted a new more democratic government that would enable both men and women to vote. But Korean landlords, merchants and other Koreans who had cooperated with the Japanese were opposed to this kind of social change. As soon as the Japanese left the peninsula both proponents and opponents of these changes formed their own political parties and began to compete for the right to govern their newly liberated nation.
Initially, leftists who supported land reforms and improved working conditions seemed to be gaining the upper hand in this conflict. In a short period of time he managed to create a government that possessed a surprising degree of legitimacy and popularity. Upon its formation, the KPR put forward a twenty-seven point platform that included sweeping land reform and many of the other items that Korean leftists had longed to see implemented. Although the KPR made an effort to include Korean conservatives, the radical nature of its programs and the potential implications for such programs on wealthy Korean landlords and businessmen assured that opposition to the KPR would emerge.
The KDP was a stronghold for wealthy Korean landlords and businessmen, some of whom had profited greatly under Japanese colonialism. Based on his analysis of these events, Cumings has argued that even if the United States and Soviet Union had never decided to occupy the Korean peninsula, it is likely that a civil war would have occurred in Korea between leftist forces supporting the KPR and conservative supporters of the KDP.
Given the broad support that the KPR possessed among wide sectors of the Korean population, it also seems likely that the KPR would have prevailed in this conflict and created a new social order that would have reflected Korean popular aspirations. But the two Cold War powers did choose to occupy Korea and their decision to do so irrevocably altered the course of Korean history.
At the Potsdam conference in July , the Soviet and American allies agreed that when the Soviet armed forces entered the war against Japan the following month, they would be responsible for all ground actions in Korea. However, as the Japanese Army collapsed unexpectedly rapidly following the Soviet entry into the war on August 9, the U. Consequently, late at night on August 10, the Americans hastily drafted a proposal to divide the Korean peninsula into two zones for the purpose of accepting the Japanese surrender.
The Soviet leader Joseph Stalin accepted this proposal with no comment and ordered Soviet forces to stop at the proposed dividing line, the 38th parallel. A month later, American troops arrived to take up positions in the South. For the Soviet Union, Korea would serve as a buffer against attack from Japan and for the United States, Korea would serve as a buffer against Soviet pressure on Japan.
For Koreans, however, the division and occupation of their homeland was unjustified, as they were a liberated people, not a former enemy. The division also had no logic, as the 38th parallel had no historical or geographical significance for Koreans and had been chosen by the Americans simply because it would place the Korean capitol Seoul into their occupation zone.
But, partly because there was no Korean government in place, the Americans and the Soviets had made the decision to divide the peninsula without consulting any Koreans. The occupation of Korea did not make a lot of sense to the American forces who assumed control of the peninsula in either. General John R. Hodge, the commander of the United States XXIV Corps, which was responsible for the American occupation of southern Korea, recalled his initial reaction to American plans to occupy the peninsula.
Although they possessed almost no understanding of the conditions that existed in Korea, Hodge and other American officers in charge of the occupation were suspicious of the indigenous KPR because they had received reports that it was backed by the Soviet Union.
Unwilling to recognize the KPR, American occupying forces decided to establish a military government in the southern zone. This meant that the American military rather than Korean citizens would govern Korea south of the thirty-eight parallel. The occupation did fill many of the administrative positions in the new military government with Koreans but the vast majority of the Koreans that they chose were conservatives who had been affiliated with the KDP.
In the following months, American occupying forces endeavored to seek out political leaders in Korea that would vigorously oppose Communist influence and support the establishment of a democratic government. Unfortunately, few liberal democrats of the type that Americans were looking for existed in Korea. During the period between the fall of and the spring of the U. Military Government made several failed attempts to create Korean councils or committees that could prepare Korea for the creation of an independent government.
The problem for the United States was that for such nascent political institutions to acquire popular legitimacy, they needed to make an effort to include leftists who remained popular in many segments of Korean society. At the same time, however, the United States worried that allowing leftists to influence these committees would enable Communists to gain control over all of Korea.
As a result American policy attempted to allow some leftists to be fairly elected to these councils while trying to ensure that conservatives maintained the upper hand. Ultimately, however, the conflicts between left and right proved irreconcilable and every American effort to create a preparatory political institution failed.
In this context, Syngman Rhee swiftly rose to political prominence in the American occupied zone. Rhee had spent most of the previous four decades in the United States attempting to lead an international movement for Korean independence from Japanese colonialism. His politics were staunchly right-wing and when the Military Government authorized his return to Korea, Rhee immediately aligned himself with the Korean right.
Americans had no illusions about the nature of his leadership. The fact that he had remained in exile during the colonial period and campaigned for national independence rather than remaining in Korea and cooperating with the Japanese colonizers gave him a genuine nationalist credential and a degree of prestige among his fellow Koreans that other Korean conservatives lacked.
Rhee was also extremely adept at manipulating the American Military Government. As American efforts to find more moderate leaders foundered, Rhee bided his time and looked for issues that could strengthen his popular support. In the meantime, events in the Soviet occupied north were taking a very different direction. The Soviets sought to ensure that the political system they put in place would be friendly toward the Soviet Union and would enable them to benefit economically from Korean industrial resources.
But because the left was already predominant in Korean politics, achieving this objective was easier than for the Americans. They also quickly established a centralized administration for their zone, staffed with Koreans and supervised by Soviet officials, who had the ultimate authority.
To head the new government for their zone, the Soviets selected a young guerilla fighter, Kim Il Sung, who had taken refuge in Manchuria during the colonial period and had fled to the Soviet Union in At the time, Manchuria had been colonized by Japan but a wide spread resistance movement against Japanese colonialism had sprung up.
Kim had been one of the most well-known guerilla leaders in this anti-Japanese struggle. Initially, neither the United States nor the Soviet Union had intended the division of the Korean peninsula to result in the establishment of separate states. But the sharp ideological differences between the Korean political leaders that emerged in the northern and southern zones combined with the irreconcilable differences between Americans and Soviets made it impossible for the Joint Commission to reach agreement.
The division of the Korean people into two adversarial states was a tragedy in many ways. The division made impossible the long cherished aspirations of many Korean patriots to form an independent Korean nation state. Moreover the creation of two different states resulted in the permanent separation of family members, as the thirty-eight parallel became a tightly sealed border.
Neither of the two new regimes that emerged on the peninsula fulfilled the aspirations of the Korean people for a more just and democratic government. Although the ROK had formally democratic institutions, Syngman Rhee had deeply autocratic tendencies and he used his position as president to suppress and intimidate those who opposed his regime. Kim Il Sung put in place an elaborate system of surveillance that enabled his regime to monitor nearly all sectors of society, and those that dissented against the regime.
Freedom of the press had long ceased to exist in northern Korea even before the creation of the DPRK and potential rivals to the regime were eliminated. North Korea was probably superior to South Korea in terms of social justice, as the land of wealthy Koreans had been redistributed to poor peasants. At the same time, South Korea was probably superior to North Korea in terms of human freedom. The Rhee regime did resort to extremely repressive tactics to control his opposition but a greater degree of freedom of expression and freedom of the press generally existed in the south.
Ultimately, however, both of these regimes were deeply flawed and both committed grievous atrocities against their own citizens. This added to the suffering that Koreans had already endured under Japanese colonialism. Perhaps most tragic of all was the fact that the irreconcilable political differences that existed between these regimes ensured that still greater hardships, including war itself, were in store.
The two new Korean states were hostile toward each other from the time that they were created. The political leaders of the two new states viewed each other as illegitimate and representative of ideas that they had struggled to oppose since the Japanese colonial period. Although a full-scale war did not break out on the Korean peninsula until June 25, , the two states began taking some of the steps that would lead to war almost as soon as they were inaugurated.
Armies had begun to develop on both sides of the thirty-eight parallel even before separate states were established. After this constabulary became the basis of the ROK Army. Once the Republic of Korea was inaugurated the Army rapidly enlisted thousands of new recruits so that it had nearly , men by the time the war broke out. The United States continued to play a powerful role in training and equipping this new army. It not only sent material support but also deployed military advisors who helped to train the army.
Well before the war broke out the Korean Military Advisory Group KMAG had already begun to establish new military schools to introduce American combat techniques and strategies to Korean soldiers. Kim Il Sung had begun creating his own military in He appointed his close political allies to the highest ranking military posts. Within months of the inauguration of the two states, they both had significant military establishments and military conflict between the two sides was starting to appear more and more likely.
The two new armies began to engage each other in small scale conflicts during the spring of The second conflict in August dragged on for months and southern forces were completely routed. Ultimately, DPRK forces regained complete control of the mountain. Despite the tensions that prevailed on the Korean peninsula and the fierce nature of these battles, however, they did not immediately produce the all out conflict that would begin just months later.
The key reason was that while Korean leaders on both sides agitated for war, neither the United States nor the Soviet Union wanted such a conflict to break out. Both demanded that their respective Korean client states show restraint or risk losing the military and economic assistance that they were receiving. For eight months after the August conflict a tense atmosphere prevailed on the peninsula with both sides preparing for a much larger conflict.
Historians have debated when and how the Korean War actually broke out. For many years, documentary evidence seemed to indicate that the Korean War began with a North Korean attack on Ongjin, a small peninsular area that was south of the thirty-eighth parallel but cut off by water from the rest of South Korea. Other historians such as Kathryn Weathersby utilized records of meetings and telegrams between Stalin and Kim Il Sung to argue that the June 25th attack was part of a larger premeditated invasion of the south.
According to Weathersby, Soviet documents demonstrate that initial plans drawn up by Kim and Stalin called for the DPRK to initiate the invasion with an attack on Ongjin but that three days before the scheduled date of attack reports reached Kim Il Sung that the South Koreans had learned of the KPA plans and were reinforcing their positions on Ongjin.
But not all scholars are likely to be convinced that these documents are the final word. The Korean War was not the brief campaign anticipated by the Soviets and promised by the North Koreans. Instead, it lasted for three years, involved troops from 17 other countries, and cost millions of lives. Truman turned to the U. By going to the U. During that time DPRK forces attempted to change political and social conditions in the southern half of the Korean peninsula.
Such reforms were not always welcomed by civilians, however, and in some cases DPRK forces had to resort to coercion and violence to accomplish them. Ultimately, however, DPRK forces controlled the southern portion of the peninsula for only a short period of time, as a dramatic reversal in the combat situation occurred in September. But MacArthur managed to land a fleet of ships and 80, marines at this port while hardly sustaining any losses of either troops or ships.
The DPRK lines were thus cut in two and quickly disintegrated. The Truman administration decided that Communism should not only be contained on the Korean peninsula but also rolled back. On September 30, American and South Korean forces crossed the thirty-eight parallel, in an effort to destroy the North Korean regime.
The ROK sent Korean National Police units to take control of northern cities, where they hunted down communists and initiated political indoctrination campaigns. In November another dramatic shift in the course of the war occurred when Chinese troops entered the war on behalf of North Korea. The motives of Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mao Tse Tung for entering the conflict appear to have been ideological rather than strategic.
He also believed that entering the war in Korea would revive the flagging momentum of the Chinese revolution. Unprepared for the sudden Chinese onslaught, American and South Korean forces were forced to retreat rapidly. Within two weeks Chinese and DPRK forces had driven their adversaries out of North Korea and then began to move into the territory south of the parallel.
On January 4, Seoul fell under Communist control once again. These were days of panic for American foreign policy makers in Washington. American officials and commanders considered the use of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons against Chinese forces during the early months of January Ultimately, however, the Truman administration decided not to use weapons of mass destruction, as they doubted the effectiveness of such weapons in terrain such as Korea, with armies in such close proximity.
Perhaps as importantly, American and ROK forces under the command of General Matthew Ridgway were able to push Chinese and North Korean forces back to the thirty-eighth parallel during the spring of A stalemate then developed along the very same line that had been drawn at the end of World War II. After the Chinese entered the war, Truman wanted to keep the conflict confined to the Korean peninsula. MacArhur, on the other hand, wanted to wage an all out war against China that would include allowing Chinese Nationalists in Taiwan to attack the Chinese mainland and bombing industrial targets in China.
When Truman refused to run the risk of turning the Korean War into a global conflict, MacArthur continued to criticize the Administration. The war continued for two more years but most of the battles that occurred during this period resulted in only minor gains and losses in territories.
There were no more dramatic shifts along the lines of those that had occurred during the last seven months of Although the situation on the Korean peninsula became somewhat more stable after the spring of a great number of lives continued to be lost in battle and the impact of the war continued to be felt deeply in Korean society. Often forgotten in historical debates over the origins and politics of the Korean War is the impact that the war had on everyday life in Korea. These dynamics of the war assured that the Korean peninsula and its people would be devastated by the conflict.
Hodge from Okinawa to Korea. It did not help that they followed the Japanese model in establishing an authoritarian US military government. Also, American occupation officials relied on wealthy land- lords and businessmen who could speak English for advice. Meanwhile, Soviet military forces in northern Korea, after initial acts of rape, looting, and petty crime, implemented policies to win popular support. They also expropriated and punished landlords and collaborators, who fled southward and added to rising distress in the US zone.
Simultaneously, the Soviets ignored US requests to coordinate occupation policies and allow free traffic across the parallel. Deterioration of Soviet-American relations in Europe meant that neither side was willing to acquiesce in any agreement in Korea that might strengthen its adversary.
This became clear when the US and the Soviet Union tried to implement a revived trusteeship plan after the Moscow Conference in December Eighteen months of intermittent bilateral negotiations in Korea failed to reach agreement on a representative group of Koreans to form a provisional government, primarily because Moscow refused to consult with anti-Communist politicians opposed to trustee- ship.
Meanwhile, political instability and economic deterioration in southern Korea persisted, causing Hodge to urge withdrawal. Postwar US demobilization that brought steady reductions in defense spending fueled pressure for disengagement. With Communist power growing in China, however, the Truman administration was unwilling to abandon southern Korea precipitously, fearing domestic criticism from Republicans and damage to US credibility abroad.
Seeking an answer to its dilemma, the US referred the Korean dispute to the United Nations, which passed a resolution late in calling for internationally supervised elections for a government to rule a united Korea. Truman and his advisors knew the Soviets would refuse to cooper- ate. Discarding all hope for early reunification, US policy by then had shifted to creating a separate South Korea, able to defend itself.
Bowing to US pressure, the United Nations supervised and certified as valid obviously undemocratic elections in the south alone in May , which resulted in formation of the Republic of Korea ROK in August. There now were two Koreas, with President Syngman Rhee installing a repressive, dictatorial, and anti-Communist regime in the south, while wartime guerrilla leader Kim Il Sung imposed the totalitarian Stalinist model for political, economic, and social development on the north.
A UN resolution then called for Soviet-American withdrawal. Despite plans to leave the south by the end of , Truman delayed military withdrawal until June 29, In spring , US military advisors supervised a dramatic improvement in ROK army fighting abilities. They were so successful that militant South Korean officers began to initiate assaults northward across the thirty-eighth parallel that summer.
These attacks ignited major border clashes with North Korean forces. Fears that Rhee might initiate an offensive to achieve reunification explain why the Truman administration limited ROK military capabilities, withholding tanks, heavy artillery, and warplanes. Moreover, by June , the US policy of containment in Korea through economic means appeared to be experiencing marked success. As important, the ROK army virtually eliminated guerrilla activities, threatening internal order in South Korea, causing the Truman administration to propose a sizeable military aid increase.
Communist victory in China in fall pressured Stalin to show his support for a similar Korean outcome. In January , he and Kim discussed plans for an invasion in Moscow, but the Soviet dictator was not ready to give final consent. Significantly, Mao also voiced concern that the Americans would defend the ROK but gave his reluctant approval as well. The president immediately named MacArthur, who was required to submit periodic reports to the United Nations on war developments.
The ad- ministration blocked formation of a UN committee that would have direct access to the UNC commander, instead adopting a procedure whereby MacArthur received instructions from and reported to the JCS. Despite these American commitments, UNC forces initially suffered a string of defeats. State Department officials began to lobby for forcible reunification once the UNC assumed the offensive, arguing that the US should destroy the KPA and hold free elections for a government to rule a united Korea.
The JCS had grave doubts about the wisdom of landing at the port of Inchon, twenty miles west of Seoul, because of narrow access, high tides, and sea- walls, but the September 15 operation was a spectacular success. A month earlier, the administration had abandoned its initial war aim of merely restoring the status quo.
On September 11, , Truman had approved NSC, a plan to cross the thirty-eighth parallel and forcibly reunify Korea. Invading the DPRK was an incredible blunder that transformed a three-month war into one lasting three years. US leaders had realized that extension of hostilities risked Soviet or Chinese entry, and therefore, NSC- 81 included the precaution that only Korean units would move into the most northern provinces.
He also wanted to repay the DPRK for sending thou- sands of soldiers to fight in the Chinese civil war. On August 5, Mao instructed his northeastern military district commander to prepare for operations in Korea in the first ten days of September. Having been wrong in doubting Inchon, the JCS remained silent this time. He was infuriated upon learning that the British were advancing a UN proposal to halt the UNC offensive well short of the Yalu to avert war with China, viewing the measure as appeasement.
In several public pronouncements, MacArthur blamed setbacks not on himself but on unwise command limitations. In response, Truman approved a directive to US officials that State Department approval was required for any comments about the war. The JCS, despite later denials, considered implementing these actions before receiving favorable battlefield reports.
Early in , Lieutenant General Matthew B. Soon, UNC counterattacks restored battle lines north of the thirty-eighth parallel. Truman reprimanded but did not recall the general. Martin Jr. The JCS had been monitoring a Communist military buildup in East Asia and thought a trusted UNC commander should have standing authority to retaliate against Soviet or Chinese escalation, including the use of nuclear weapons that they had deployed to forward Pacific bases.

Customer testimonials. Read all testimonials. Determining Korean's linguistic affiliation is complicated by a long history of contact with the Japanese and Chinese languages. Not surprisingly, Korean shares certain linguistic features with each of these languages. The dialects are distinguished and regulated by each country's national language policy.
Regional dialects roughly correspond to province boundaries. Some of the dialects are not easily mutually intelligible. The Korean language is part of a northern Asian language known as Altaic, that includes Turkish, Mongolian and Japanese, suggesting early Northern migrations and trade.
Korean was also heavily influenced by Chinese, but have adopted its own writing system in the 16th century. Korean is among the world's most misunderstood and misrepresented languages because its origins are obscure and the subject of ongoing scholarly debate. Evidence suggests that Korean and Japanese belong to the Altaic language family, which also includes Turkish and Mongolian. Chinese, although it belongs to a completely different language family, influenced Korean greatly.
Many believe that the language emerged from a single cultural source. But just as the Korean people of today did not descend from a single homogeneous race, the Korean language of today did not evolve from a single language. Various groups who populated the Korean peninsula in ancient times merged into a homogeneous people with a single language during the unifications of the sixth to the fourteenth century.
By the fifteenth century, Korean had emerged as the language we now know. The modern Korean writing system, han'gul, was devised in during the reign of King Sejong, perhaps the greatest monarch of the Yi Dynasty Before han'gul, other Korean scripts used a complex system of Chinese characters to represent the sounds of Korean. But because of the differences between Chinese and Korean, Chinese characters could not adequately denote Korean speech.
Further, only the elite could afford the time necessary to study Chinese, so King Sejong commissioned the invention of a phonetic script both more efficient and more accessible to the common people. Described as one of the most scientific alphabets ever devised, han'gul consists of 24 letters: 14 consonants and 10 vowels. Combinations of these letters represent 5 double consonants and 11 dipthongs.
The letters, grouped in clusters of 2, 3, or 4, form syllables and words. The invention of han'gul marks a major achievement in the history of Korean culture because it has contributed to one of the highest literacy rates in the world. A variety of grammatical forms reveal the high value Koreans traditionally placed on expressing and receiving respect.
Korean verbs have several forms to indicate the inferior, equal, or superior status of one speaker to another. Koreans now use only a few respectful styles, a change reflecting growth of the middle class and greater social equality. Modern Korean still reflects China's deep influence over centuries. Roughly half the Korean vocabulary consists of words derived from Chinese, mainly through the Confucian classics. Today South Koreans generally use a hybrid writing system in which words derived from Chinese are written with Chinese characters, while Korean words are written in han'gul.
North Koreans totally eliminated Chinese characters and write even Chinese words in han'gul. Despite word borrowing, Korean is completely distinct from Chinese, in sound and in sentence structure.
