Korean War Campaign Report

  • move
Background
In 1945 the Korean peninsula was divided at the 38th parallel and two seperate countries (South and North) were established, one democratic and one communist. After the invasion of the Republic of Korea (ROK) by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 25th June 1950, UN forces from nations all over the world were drawn into the conflict but pushed back to the Pusan perimeter. The Invasion at Inchon, commanded by Generel McArthur, effectively ended the stalemate and by December 1950 UN and ROK froces had reached the nothern border of the DPRK. China's entry into the war in November 1950 changed the situation yet again and UN and ROK forces were forced to withdraw back south of the 38th parallel. While politicians and diplomats tried to find peace, thousands died in battles reminiscent of WWI over a few yards of territory. On 27th July 1953 a cease fire came into effect that is still valid today with no peace treaty ever signed. The war is often referred to as the Forgotten War.

This Campaign was to honor those who fought in the Korean War.

About Stefan Halter (Dangeroo)
FROM: ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

I'll build just about anything military related that gets my interest, though most of it is 1/35 scale WWII Allied.

Nice to see this feature finally available to preserve all the great efforts of the campaign members. Thanks to Stefan for a great campaign and impeccable leadership. The only down side was remembering my Trumpeter M26A1 kit was not the most user friendly kit that I've ever built. Cheers, Jan

Agreed thanks to Stefan for including me even if real life got in the way of finishing and for a smoothly run campaign. A pleasure to be in such fine company.

Great job Stefan. I really enjoyed the history lessons and getting to see all of the different projects. It was one of the few campaigns I actually finished last year. BZ

Thanks again for the campaign and putting this up. You'll have to put up an article how to make those cool color progress grids that lists the group members.

Matthew thanks for getting this one up! Thanks folks, it was a fun campaign and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Read a lot of books on the Korean war in parallel (I think there were about 4 or 5...). The only negative is that my campaigns for the future won't last a whole year anymore: there were about 6 months when hardly anything went. Less is more! 6 or 7 months with extensions of 1 or 2 months are much more effective I think. Just a tip for other future campaign leaders... Mecanix, you're the vicim of my totally arbitrary honorary ribbon... Greg, it's quite simple and crude actually: I did it in MS Excel, made screenshots and copied those into Paint and saved them as jpg... I know we could learn a lot from Jan Etal on the chart subject! Cheers! Stefan

What a great campaign! (And a fine choice of cover-shot... ) Tom

Great build and topic! I hope I'll be able to join the fray on an eventual "Korean War Campaign- 2" Cheers, Guido
