Pyongyang North Korea tour guide soldier War Museum

Posing with our tour guide at the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum (yes, that’s the full name) in Pyongyang – during our visit, we watched a video that gave some ‘alternative facts’ to the history behind the Korean War that most of us probably learned. This included claims that pre-Korean War the United States was occupying South Korea under military rule (and thus North Korea had to intervene) and that the number of American troops that died or surrendered during the war were right around 405,000 (official estimates: around 35,000).
