In 1950, Communist-backed North Korean forces invaded the US-protected South. Britain came into the war on the side of the US but, still suffering financial stricture after the demands of World War II, the British government sent poorly equipped brigades of troops to help the beleagured US forces. Anti-war dissent at home and threats to use the Atom bomb added to the danger of the situation, threatening World War III.
