The engrossing documentaries in Battleground Korea offer one way to learn the history of the Korean War conflict through photographs and segments of film taken on the ground and in the air at the time of the events. The direction draws heavily upon archive footage and news reports to guide viewers through the sometimes confusing chain of historical events that occurred during the hostilities in a coherent, clear way. The excellent series provides information and educational material, but does concern violent actions. As memories fade about the course of the Korean War, this documentary holds value in presenting accurate material.
