North Korea v South Korea: Inside the World’s Biggest Military Powers as World War 3 looms
South Korea and North Korea have been at odds for years having never signed a peace treaty at the end of the Korean War in 1953, and the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) that separates the two countries stands as one of the most heavily militarised borders in the world. The militarY’S of both countries are among the largest in the world and ongoing tensions from the 1950-53 Korean War continue to play a large role in determining the relations between North and South Korea.
