Korea '85


Ever since the cease-fire of the Korean War of the 1950's, an uneasy peace had existed on the Korean peninsula. As the Cold War grew in intensity through the 60's and 70's, the positions of the two sides became increasingly strained. By the mid 80's both sides were armed and ready to do battle once more. It would only take one incident in the world to trigger a new Korean War, one that would be fought with weapons and attack helicopters. With events in Europe carrying the course of history in unexpected directions, the time for the new Korean War has arrived.
