(Contemporary Korean history) More Korean War photos at Ohmynews

I have previously been posting links and linking pictures from a series of articles at Ohmynews, in which a reporter visiting the US has among other things dug out from US archives some fine but often very tragic pictures from the Korean War, taken by photographers accompanying the UN forces. Here are links to my earlier posts, from which you'll find links to the original articles: Photo series 1-5; Photo series 6-8; Photo series 9-11.

This time I won't link any pictures - there's been quite many of them lately - but give only the links.

Photo series 12: various DPRK pics like US POWs paraded in Seoul in August 1950 (likely captured during the war), UN troops retreating after the entry of PRC troops. (Interestingly, the writer uses the term Chunggonggun or "Red China troops" or "Communist China troops" in the caption. The term Chunggong (中共) has very much fallen out of use since the establishment of diplomatic relations with the mainland China.

Photo series 13; pics of cities destroyed in the war, paratroopers landing etc.
