Special | 59s Video has closed captioning.

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.
