The Two Koreas - Published 2003

National Geographic

Korea was divided in 1948 following World War II, but war erupted again in 1950 when North Korea invaded South Korea. Decades later, old tensions still exist across the fragile Demilitarized Zone that separates the communist north from the democratic south. This attractive political map contains information about the population, economy, and armaments of the two countries. Published in July 2003 as half of a two–map set with "The Forgotten War: Three Long Years in Korea."
