“Life like”

In addition to the life sized soldiers on the battle ground the most impressive thing was the granite wall with images that looked like photographs of various groups...quite haunting. Again sad memories.

“Impression of battle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Raincoat, tired, exhausted soldiers talks to us what these people where suffering in one war which is still acctual today. UN forces and civilians, paying a debt in hundreds of thousands of lives in invasion are thanked here. Walk slowly here, for all these who fell in the madness of unnecessary wars between east and west.

“worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

although i knew that the short but bloody korean war involved the united nations it was only when we visited that we realised the diversity of the countries involved. i suspect that it is overlooked at times due to the other memorial sites in the vicinity which is a shame as it is in its own way a sombre and respectful place

“Best memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

This memorial in my opinion the best war memorial. You can almost hear the solders yelling orders to each other. Very moving.
