In time, China did lend assistance to North Korea, prolonging this conflict which claimed many, many lives.

She then asked these American soldiers to tell her how well they were being treated by their captors (they were usually not being treated well at all).

Jane was the subject of plenty of anger and disgust from American soldiers who were appalled by her conduct during the Korean conflict. Fonda has since apologized for her actions, which were apparently prompted by her social idealism.
