After Ww ii, Koreans rejoiced at the beat of the Japan, but their joy was unsuccsefflull. As the Cold Battle began to develop in Europe, the USA and USSR were unable to achieve an agreement on the unification of Korea - they could not agree on what form the authorities should take, the sort of economy it will have, within the alliances it may make.
Freedom from the battle did not result in immediate freedom and instead, the region was divided by ideological differences brought on by the emerging Cold Battle. World War II divided Korea in a Communist, northern half and an Americanoccupied southern fifty percent, divided at the 38th seite an seite. As a result, Koreans were unable to ascertain an independent govt. In The fall of 1947, Un General Set up adopted a resolution that needed general polls under the direction of a EL Commission. Yet , the Soviet Union declined to conform to the quality and denied the ESTE Commission entry to the north half of Korea. UN Basic Assembly then simply adopted one more resolution calling for elections in areas attainable to the ESTE Commission.

daring amphibious assault in Inchon,
a port on the western coast of Korea.
Having made this landing, MacArthur
crushed the North Korean language army in a
