On 30 June 1950 President Harry S. Truman ordered U.S. troops to South Korea after North Korea invaded over the 38th parallel. The North Korean Army; supplied with Soviet T-34 tanks, had early success against U.S. anti-tank efforts. U.S. WWII era bazookas were nearly useless against the T-34’s thick armor.
