Battle for Korea: A History of the Korean Conflict

Across the 38th
Parallel

At the end of September of 1950, the United Nations had largely accomplished what it set out to do: "To repel armed invasion and restore peace and stability in the area." With the exception of some mop-up work, the invading North Koreans had been expelled by the sword. But nobody was of a mind to let the North Koreans withdraw behind their borders when unequivocal victory seemed at hand. The wording of the U.N. resolution was vague enough to allow U.N. forces to carry the fight across the 38th parallel to make sure the North Koreans wouldn't launch another invasion. So the mission of the U.S.-led international force was redefined.

Above: The hunt for snipers goes on as Marine Pfcs. Ralph Clifford of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Dominic Bulgarella of Grand Rapids, Michigan, ferret out North Korean stragglers amid the ruins. October 1950.
