Pyongyang in The Hot WarEdit
Kim Il-sung directed the North Korean invasion of South Korea from Pyongyang, as well as the subsequent conduct of the Korean War after it was folded into World War III. Pyongyang had received substantial air-defenses from the Soviet Union.
In April 1951, the United States launched a substantial bombing raid against Pyongyang, in an effort to kill Kim. The attack used conventional explosives, rather than atomic weapons. Kim survived, although the attack did a fair amount of damage. The loss of a half dozen B-29s and two Twin Mustangs was deemed an acceptable tradeoff for the damage inflicted.
