It was called MacArthur's masterstroke - a daring amphibious assault - deep behind enemy lines - and it changed the course of the Korean War.

In June of 1950 the North Korean People's Army - backed by the Soviet Union - invaded South Korea. By August - American and South Korean troops had been pushed back into a tiny perimeter on the peninsula's southern coast.

It was a desperate situation - requiring a bold, daring solution and Douglas MacArthur had one: place 70,000 U.S. & South Korean marines and soldiers on 320 ships, have them navigate the treacherous 30-foot tides to scale the seawall at Inchon - and then fight their way inland to liberate Seoul, South Korea's capital.

In this powerful episode of "War Stories with Oliver North", you'll meet the extraordinary men - Americans and Korean - who fought those terrible battles - and accomplished what few believed could ever be done.

To show you how their courage still inspires a new generation of American and South Korean troops today, we went to Inchon, Seoul - and the DMZ - the demilitarized zone that separates the democratic south from the communist north.

Join us in this podcast - as we visit the battlefields where MacArthur's masterstroke was fought - and see if you aren't inspired as well.
