Les Canadiens en Corée

Les Canadiens en Corée

| 16 min

Court métrage documentaire sur la guerre de Corée qui survint au début des années 1950, en pleine guerre froide. Grâce à la coopération des officiers et des soldats de la 25e brigade d’infanterie canadienne, on nous explique les enjeux de l’affrontement et on nous présente l’emploi du temps de quelques-uns des 6000 soldats canadiens qui combattirent aux côtés des troupes des 14 pays membres des Nations Unies à la défense de la Corée du Sud.
