The Korean War was possibly the most important event since World War II - a war that never really ended, influencing international relations to this day. Despite millions of deaths and refugees, this war has been nearly forgotten. With the recent opening of archives in Russia, the US, China and South Korea, new historical material is now available, including colour films and hundreds of photographs, to rediscover a little-known conflict that shaped our world. Korea: The Never Ending War brings to light a new history of the event, plunging us into a critical turning point in world history. To understand the present situation, we need to revisit the past.

World War II was the sum of battles waged: strategies that succeeded or failed, changing the course of the war. Some were the result of careful planning leading to decisive victory, like the Allied assault on Rommel's forces at El Alamein. Others would defy carefully laid plans. From Pearl Harbor, where Japan's attack on US naval capacity instead galvanised America to join the war, to Okinawa, where the Allied victory came at such a cost they would turn to a new strategy in Japan, the atomic bomb. Each battle another domino tipping, leading the world inexorably towards victory or surrender.

Weather and terrain could be a soldier's greatest enemies, or their greatest assets. Such was the case for these battles. For the Finnish resisting Soviet invasion, a smaller force using the home advantage to beat a larger, better equipped invading army. In Moscow, where Germany's attempt to take the city floundered in the face of the harsh Soviet winter. The Kokoda track, where Allied and Japanese forces struggled through the steep, muddy terrain to engage each other for control of Port Moresby. These were battles fought over some of the most difficult landscapes, and in the most treacherous conditions possible.

The power in Europe has finally and fatally shifted - the resurgent Germany of the Third Reich is the dominant force. War rips Spain apart as a three-year civil war of terrible brutality starts. But Britain seems too preoccupied with an abdication crisis which sees its lovesick king surrender his crown. Japan steps up its aggression with a full-scale invasion of China. The British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, with his French counterpart, tries to satisfy Hitler at Munich by throwing him the Czech Sudetenland. The best that can be said is that they have bought time.

In the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics repression, gulags, collectivisation and Five Year Plans are beginning to tally the terrible human toll that will always be associated with Stalin's rule. Elsewhere, liberal democracy seems imperilled by shaky coalitions, continuing depression and debt. Accelerating armaments programs both in Europe and in Asia increasingly persuade people that they are no longer living in a post-war world. They are living in a pre-war world. Mussolini marches into Ethiopia - then called Abyssinia - and, as it had been by Japan's invasion of China, the fatal weakness of the League of Nations is exposed.

This episode explores battles decided by access to resources and how, whether the battle is won or lost, the outcome can still lead to ultimate defeat. Control over resources and access to supply lines could decide the outcome of a campaign. This is seen in Germany's return to the Ardennes forest, their ability to win the Battle of the Bulge depending on the element of surprise, instead stretching them beyond their capacity to sustain a longer fight. And the Battle of Midway, where Japan's loss of skilled officers marked the beginning of their slow march to surrender.
