Korean War [1950-1953]
Dogfights have always attracted attention. Since the First World War, their participants have been considered heroes, stories have been written about nothing, and they have become idols of generations. However, the reality of air combat is much more prosaic. Whatever the motivation of the pilots to fight, there was always a winner on one side and a loser on the other in a crippled or burning plane falling to the ground. This series deals with the struggle from their beginning to the modern age, when the sky is steadily ruled by jet engines.
The divided Korean Peninsula is a place that raises many questions and differing views. The people who live on both sides of the Line of Demarcation have not had the slightest idea since the end of the war of the direction in which the fates of those on the opposite side had developed. There is also no postal connection between the capitals of the two states.
Identifying the dimensions that were affected by the division of the Korean Peninsula The division of the Korean Peninsula between the two new states affected several areas. For centuries, the Koreans were one united nation, and the division was thus reflected in all major dimensions. First, I would like to identify and name the most important ones. In the further course of the work, I will deal in detail with only a few of them, which, however, are based on other, less visible consequences, and therefore it is necessary to create a comprehensive overview. The main areas include cultural, demographic, political, security and socio-economic. The consequences of the partition of Korea affected all these areas.
The Korean Peninsula before the division and during the 20th century until the 1990s From 1910 to 1945, Korea was under Japanese administration, and especially during World War II, it was under great pressure from the Japanese side. Japan was preparing for war and needed the resources found on the Korean Peninsula.
The social consequences of the division of the Korean Peninsula for both countries today, with an emphasis on the DPRK Freedom of the population, respect for basic human rights, education and access to health care are of great importance for human life and . The causes and suggestions that have laid the foundation for the current situation will be analyzed in the subchapters for each country separately, as they vary greatly.
The economic consequences of the division of the Korean Peninsula for both countries from the end of the 20th century to the present with an emphasis on the DPRK The main event that affected both parts of the Korean Peninsula was undoubtedly the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. This event, together with the political and economic foundations that have been established since the inception of both states , has been the cause of the changes that have followed over the next two decades. The next rapid wave of industrialization and modernization had different consequences in both countries. In North Korea, modern totalitarianism has been completed and a regime that has withstood even the greatest economic crises has not collapsed. By contrast, South Korea has embarked on a rapid rise and development in all areas of political, social and economic life and is becoming one of the world's economic powers.
Despite all the negative analyzes and economic problems, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea remains unique in many ways, and it will be interesting to see how long it lasts in isolation and closed to political and economic reforms.
Introduction The divided Korean Peninsula is a place that raises many questions and differing views. People who live on both sides of the Line of Demarcation have not had the slightest idea since the end of the war of the direction in which the fates of those on the opposite side were unfolding. There is also no postal connection between the capitals of the two states.
When the car runs out of fuel just in front of the gas station, you can push it towards it. But what to do if the same thing happens to an aircraft in flight? Plus a jet fighter, the most modern creation of its time ... the same. Push.
The best pilot Risner had ever met in his life was not an American, but a MiG-15 pilot with whom he had fought. To a duel that ultimately brought losses on both sides.
Most Western publications state that the first night duel and the downing of jet fighters took place during the fighting in Korea, specifically on November 3, 1952. The other side, on the other hand, clearly denies the downing. A comparison of the available data reveals a number of ambiguities, which make this event a relatively controversial issue.
You look forward to this moment all the time at school, but when you are left with an entire plane without an instructor, your hands sweat profusely. They warned me about the hole at the end of the runway, so I repeated during takeoff, don't forget the pool. After a few circuits, I chose landing practice. The landing was beautifully soft and I completely forgot about the pool in the joy that I am only good. Of course I parked in it. For another 6 weeks, everyone was pretending to be a poolless Blesse.
Thirty years ago, on October 26, 1979, General Park Chung Hee, President of the Republic of Korea, was shot dead. In my opinion, his life and the circumstances of the assassination illustrate very well the complex history of the Korean Peninsula.

Interesting facts from the end of the Korean War
On November 1, 1950, six Soviet fighters were assigned to patrol the Yalu River: Maj. Strojkov, Lt. Guts, Kaznachev and Lt. Monachov, Chiz and Sanin. The MiG-15 of the latter failed to start, so the remaining five led by a World War II veteran Strojkov, who had 16 individual victories, set out for the sky. At 14.15, the leader of the second pair of Lt. Col. Guts saw three Mustang fighters and the Soviets attacked without delay. They took too high a speed during the dive, so there was not much time left to aim and shoot. The Americans easily avoided the dose fired by Lt. Chiz and escaped back south by a ground flight. However, por. Chiz claimed the first victory.
Of all the armed forces of the West, the US military has the shortest and, I dare say, the strangest history. Usually, the armed forces go down in history through battle, and the strangeness of the American military begins with the fact that in the battle, which dates back to the beginning of the North American military, this army did not fight at all, because it did not exist yet.
