BBC Twentieth Century Battlefields - Ep4 - Korea - Worksheet to support the BBC Documentary
Written as an enrichment/flipped/independent learning activity the worksheet contains a variety of data collection activities for the video.
Peter and Dan Snow, through sophisticated graphics, bring to life the forgotten war of the 20th century - the battle for Korea. The Snows journey to the border between North and South Korea which is a military frontline to this day - there is still no peace treaty more than 50 years after war broke out between the Communist north and Nationalist south.
Peter and Dan tell the story of two key moments in the years of fighting that embroiled soldiers from countries around the world. Peter finds out about the challenges faced by the Americans as they set out on one of the largest amphibious attacks in history, the Inchon landings. On the banks of the Imjin river, Dan recounts how, in 1951, a few hundred British soldiers managed to stem the tide against thousands of attacking Chinese.
‘On the banks of this River in Korea in 1951, America, Britain and their United Nation allies were locked in a battle with tens of thousands of Communist troops. What moved the Allies to cross the world to fight here in Korea, only five years after the bloodshed of the Second World War, was their drive to stop Communism spreading further’
