Human bombs open the route of advance for their units

The world’s people liken the Korean war to a head-to-head between the rifle and the atomic bomb.

When making comparison between the DPRK and the US in terms of national power at that time, the ratios were 1 to 78 in territory, 1 to 10 in population and two years to 174 years in national development history and there was no comparison between the US and the DPRK in the light of economic and military strength.

Nevertheless, the DPRK won the war.

During the fierce three-year war it produced more than 600 heroes.

Twenty-four out of them blocked the muzzles of the enemy’s guns with their chests.

The first human bomb was Jang Thae Hwa.

He was born in Sakju County, North Phyongan Province, on January 12 1928.

He joined the Korean People’s Army in 1949, and blocked the enemy’s gun muzzle with his chest in an attack to capture a hill on June 26 1950, the day after the war broke out.

On May 9 1951, the title of Hero of the DPRK was awarded to him.

And Kim Pyong Mo was the last to blow up an enemy pillbox in the war.

At the time when the war started, he was waiting for the birth of his third child, but he joined the KPA without hesitation.

He blocked the gun muzzle in an offensive action on a hill on July 17 1953 to open the route of advance for his unit.

His chest was riddled with 37 bullets and there was his Party membership card wet with blood.

Ten days later the Korean Armistice Agreement was concluded.

Lots of sons and daughters of the DPRK did not hesitate to sacrifice their youth and lives for the victory in the war.

Bradley, the then chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, admitted that the Korean war was a great military disaster and the wrong war at the wrong place, at the wrong time and with the wrong enemy.
