How Did The Korean War End ?  

The war between North and South Korea was a civil war and so in fact the war never ended. Only an understanding was reached among these countries that there would be no more violence from either side. There were no militaries involved and no army cashes. People of both the countries fought with each other.

The Korean War came to an official end when the United States President Dwight Eisenhower penned the Armistice on July 27th, 1953 and forced the leaders of both North and South Korea to sign a peace treaty. The war had started in June 1950 when tensions began rising on both the sides of the divide. The leaders of North and South Korea had entered into too many disagreements and their efforts to unify the country only ended in a war.

In the Korean War, more than 54,000 American soldiers died and one million Koreans and Chinese people died. There was no massive military attack but people themselves turned violent and killed each other. Soon the war turned into a cold war. North and South Korea was divided at the 38th parallel. The United States of America was supporting South Korea and the Soviet Union was supporting the North Korea. So the war continued for a longer time because the United States and Soviet Union were in a cold war at that time. They took every chance to support other countries that were against each other. The same thing happened in Vietnam also. Finally, the United States had to request the United Nations to intervene and stop the war, which was completely futile and irrelevant.
