Map shows the defensive positions of the UN armies just south of Pyeongtaek and Anseong, shielding Daejon to the south, with the US navies at Pohang and Busan providing reinforcements.

Troops and tanks (believed to be DPRK) run across land, through water, and pour along the roads.

Explosion of a bridge at Geumgang (river Geum) as part of the US retreat. Further bridges destroyed by US aerial bombardment.

Artillery positions fire (believed to be US), explosions amidst troops (believed to be DPRK) as they cross the river. Aerial bombardment continues as the troops board rowing boats.

DPRK troops - on foot and in boats - successfully cross the river. Tank rolls past dilapidated building, with a signpost showing 25km to Daejeon

**Please note: this programme was produced by the Documentary Film Studio of the DPRK and offers a version of events, commentary and opinion from the perspective of the DPRK.**

Having looked at the build up to war in Vol.1, Vol.2 looks at the DPRK military response to the 'invasion' from the south. The structure of the tape follows four key events, namely: the battle for Seoul; the battle of Osan; the battle for Daejeon; and the pursuit of the retreating UN forces to the Busan Perimeter.

The tape is entirely in black and white, and uses both DPRK and non-DPRK footage.

Panoramic shot of Seoul. Shot of commanders discussing strategy, artillery guns being raised for firing. Rows of artillery fire continuously (note: Seoul was taken by DPRK forces a few days after outbreak of hostilities).

Streetfighting. Soldiers run amongst buses and buildings. Captured ROK troops marched out of buildings.

Shot of the river Han's destroyed bridge, with mutilated bodies amidst it. (note: this bridge was the only escape route for the civilians of Seoul. After the ROK army and government fled Seoul, orders were given for it to be destroyed in order to slow the advancing DPRK army. It was crowded with refugees when it was destroyed: many were killed, many more stranded.)

More dead bodies of civilians and ROK soldiers, seemingly 'as found'.

Crowds cheer victorious drive-by of DPRK troops (including horse-drawn carriages), with pictures of Stalin and [Kim Il-Sung?] on the buildings behind.

Footage of a seemingly joyous liberated Seoul.
