About the event

Dr Grace Huxford discusses the end of the Korean War on its 65th anniversary. It is often stated that the Korean War (1950-53) never actually ended. Although an armistice was signed at Panmunjom in July 1953, the lack of a formal peace treaty, as well as continuing tension on the Korean peninsula, has led many to suppose that there was never a true conclusion.

In this talk, based on archival and oral history records, Dr Grace Huxford explores the many possible endings of the Korean War and describes the experiences of British servicemen.

Dr Huxford will seek to show the importance of Korea - often called the ‘Forgotten War’ - in British history, and highlight the contribution of British forces to this conflict.
