Schaefer described how in the wake of the North Vietnamese victory, North Korean leader Kim Il Sung sought Chinese assistance in reunifying the Korean peninsula by force after negotiations between North and South were halted.
NKIDP Working Paper #4, “China and the Post-War Reconstruction of North Korea, 1953-1961,” written by Zhihua Shen and Yafeng Xia, is the first paper in English to systematically assess the extent and significance of Chinese assistance to North Korea after the Korean War.
CWIHP Working Paper #44 by Bernd Schaefer
NKIDP e-Dossier No. 1, "Did Stalin Lure the United States into the Korean War? New Evidence on the Origins of the Korean War," features a telegram from Stalin to Czechoslovakian President Klement Gottwald which raises new questions about the origins of the Korean War. Did Stalin purposefully seek to entangle the United States in a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula? Did Stalin expect an intervention by the Chinese communists from virtually the beginning of the conflict? Two experts, Donggil Kim and William Stueck, provide an initial assessment of this potentially significant new finding.
