C.S. Lewis publishes The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
, the first book in the Chronicles of Narnia
series. Lewis was an Oxford Don, specialising in Medieval Literature and its use of allegory. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
is often seen as an allegory of the Christian struggle between good and evil.
Following the Soviet and American withdrawal from the occupation of North and South Korea respectively, the Korean War breaks out as each side seeks to unify Korea under its own political system. While the U.S.A., U.K and other UN nations came to the defence of South Korea, North Korea had support from the Soviet Union and China. The war continued until 1953.
