KOREAN WIND-UP: The true reaction of the battle-torn Gis to the Korean truce has been well pictured by the cameras of THE BIG PICTURE.

THE REBIRTH OF SEOUL: Our cameras focus on Seoul, the Capital of the Republic of Korea. It is the story of a city twice the parade ground of Communist troops, four times a battlefield. "Rebirth of Seoul" is also the story of man's enduring will to triumph in the face of the greatest adversity. With other free members of the United Nations, the United States met the Communist attack in Korea with bravery and sacrifice. Today, Americans, individually and through our government, are responding to the needs of the people of South Korea with generosity and compassion.

Big Picture Series: Korean War Volume 5 DVD

Includes Four Big Picture Series Episodes on the Korean War:

A DAY IN KOREA: Comparison of the life of the individual in the states to the soldier on the front lines of Korea. Despite the truce talks fighting is still going on and we still have a serious need for men and machines. The contrast between their life and the life of the soldier should bring the picture closer.

THE ARMY COMBAT TEAM: THE BIG PICTURE shows you what happens in one day of war. Excerpting a communique from the daily newspaper we show the fighting that lies behind the brief report of such a communique. THE ARMY COMBAT TEAM, which has proved itself in the Korean fighting, is shown in action. Infantry, Artillery Armor and Army Aviation form a powerful offensive and defensive team of the 8th Army in Korea. Again, it's the fire-power of this team against the manpower of the Communists. THE BIG PICTURE focuses on the man and the machines of this team in the rugged terrain of the Korean peninsula.

CIVIL ASSISTANCE, KOREA: We approach this from the beginning in Korea when we had to control the civilian population; rehabilitation for tactical reasons. This is a very human, moving story and again points out our respect and concern for the individual.

THE ARMY MEDICAL CORPS: Graphically shown here is the treatment given our wounded in battle. We see the care a man receives from medics all along the line; from the time the wounded soldier calls "Medic" until he is released for duty. The Medical Corps is saving more lives than in any other time of combat. Lieutenant Colonel S. J. Newsom of San Diego, California, a former Division Surgeon with the Army's 7th Division in Korea, now stationed at Camp Pickett, Virginia, tells the story in an interview with Captain Zimmerman.

THE SECOND INFANTRY DIVISION IN KOREA: Here is an exciting film documentary of the famous "Indianheads," the men of the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division and the vital role they played in Korea. Although the fighting in Korea is over, the deeds of the 2nd Infantry Division will long be remembered. Out of the struggle in Korea have come many accounts of great suffering and even greater heroism, but few of them can match the story as told in this BIG PICTURE program. Through careful editing and with emphasis on "close-ups" of the men themselves, this outstanding documentary seems to tell the personal story of the soldiers of the Indianhead Division who lived up to their proud motto -- "Second to None."

7TH INFANTRY IN KOREA: At the end of World War 2 the 7th accepted Japanese surrender in Korea. In 1950 they return to the new war.
