It is 98 AD On the death of the elderly Nerva, who adopted him for two years first, Marcus Ulpius Trajan becomes emperor. Professor Francesca Cenerini and Paolo Mieli tell about it on “Past and present” broadcast tomorrow at 1.15pm on Rai3 and at 8.30pm on Rai Storia. Born in modern-day Andalusia, he is a much loved general who, already under Domitian, distinguished himself for value and strategic skills. His figure symbolizes the return to the ancient Roman model of simplicity and obedience, so much so that the senate confers on him the honorary title of optimus princeps. Trajan reforms justice, limits the tax burden and adopts an expansionist policy. In 101 he undertook the first of two military campaigns against the Dacia of King Decebalus, today’s Romania. The exploits of that war, which ended 5 years later with the Roman victory and the suicide of Decebalus, are celebrated by the bas-reliefs of the Trajan’s column, where we can still read them, as on an ancient storyboard. Having become a Roman province, Dacia gave Trajan the gold needed to build countless public works throughout the Empire. With Trajan, the Empire reaches its maximum expansion and lives its golden age.

The Korean War (1950-53) marked the affirmation of Communist China among the great world powers and contributed to creating geopolitical balances in the Far East we still have to deal with today. The battle of the Chosin basin (27 November – 11 December 1950) – narrated by the two-part documentary broadcast tomorrow from 21.10 on Rai Storia – was one of the decisive moments of the conflict, as well as the most violent clash between Chinese and American troops of the history. The military historian Gastone Breccia introduced and contextualized the topic. Between 1950 and 1953 Korea was the scene of a very hard war, which caused over two million deaths and the destruction of a large part of the country. The cause of the conflict was the division of the peninsula along the 38th parallel, decided in 1945 when the Soviets and the Americans put an end to the Japanese occupation. From 1948 in the south a bloody civil war began between communists and nationalists; after the defeat of the insurrection, the communist army crossed the border on 25 June 1950, relying on the military weakness of the adversary. Two days later, however, the United Nations authorized the intervention of a multinational force to restore the status quo. The Americans provided the bulk of the fighting troops and managed at the last minute to stop the North Korean advance. On September 15, 1950, General Douglas MacArthur, head of the UN forces, launched a lightning-fast amphibious counterattack that led to the liberation of Seoul and the expulsion of the North Koreans from all over the south. But – convinced that he could reunify the country – Mac Arthur ordered his troops to reach the Yalu, which separates Korea from Manchuria, ignoring the signs of possible involvement in the conflict of the People’s Republic of China. Mao Zedong made it clear that he would not tolerate an American presence on its borders without reacting; at the end of October, nearly 300,000 Chinese soldiers advanced into Korea, counterattacking the UN columns by surprise, which suffered heavy losses. At the end of November, the 1st Marine Division was surrounded by 60,000 Chinese near the artificial lake of Chosin in the Taebaek Mountains. For two weeks the Marines struggled to survive in temperatures as low as 30 degrees below zero, eventually managing to break the encirclement and escape to Hungnam Harbor. The war would go on until July 1953, without a real winner.
