Photo Archives: North Korean Prisoners of War, 1951
As North Korea turns more bellicose in 2013, a look back at a Korean War POW camp.
Though North Korea is already under UN sanctions for nuclear activity, the country went ahead with another test last month, and has since asserted that it is willing to use nuclear arms against both the U.S. and South Korea.
This official U.S. Marine Corps photo shows a scene from the war ended by the armistice. Taken by Technical Sergeant Robert H. Mosier on November 8, 1951, it entered the National Geographic archives in January 1953. The armistice was signed just a few months later, on July 27.
The notes accompanying the photo contain information about the site of the POW camp. All location information is marked through in red, and the Department of Defense Office of Public Information
