The Full History of U.S. Korean War: Men of the U.S. 24th Division

The Korean War began when with an invasion into South Korea with the last two years of conflict becoming a war of attrition, with the front line near to the 38th parallel. Jet fighters confronted each other in air-to-air combat for the first time, and Soviet pilots covertly flew in defense of their communist allies. The fighting ended on 27 July 1953, when an armistice was signed.
