1. What were the characteristics of Japanese rule in Korea from 1910 to 1945?

2. Who led North & South Korea after the Japanese were defeated?

3. What was China’s role on the conflict? Who was the leader in China at the time?

4. What were the events of June 25, 1950? What was the reaction to those events?

5. Who was Douglas MacArthur? What did he do? What was his relationship with Truman?

6. How does MacArthur manage to roll the UN/American troops into North Korea?

7. Why does MacArthur consider it important to control/bombard the Yalu River?
