The 25th Infantry Division In Korea - The Big Picture

National Archives and Records Administration ARC Identifier 2569564 / Local Identifier 111-TV-294 Big Picture: The 25th Infantry Division in Korea Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). The story begins on June 25, 1950, when the division was still in Japan. As filmed by combat cameramen of the Army Signal Corps, the history of the "Tropic Lightening" Division in Korea is told. Dedicated to all those men of the division--past, present and future--this film presentation follows the battle from a perimeter defense in the north near Sangju, through a dramatic shift under cover of darkness of 150 miles south to meet the Pusan-bent enemy, and back up the Korean Peninsula. Then, began Operation "Mop-Up," a housecleaning, 25th Division style. As the war progressed, excellent footage was taken of the division on the outskirts of Seoul in January, 1951, as U.N. troops retired from the city. With the start of Armistice negotiations in July 1951, the division took up defenses along "The Iron Triangle." Here, cameras caught the searchlight company in action, psychological warfare in extensive use, and finally, in May, 1953, the division's last major battle.
