The Battle of the Chosin Reservoir was a pivotal battle in the Korean War. The battle was a brutal 17 day fight in bitterly cold weather fought from 27 November to 13 December 1950.  During the battle the United States X Corps was attacked by the Chinese 9th Army in the vicinity of the Chosin reservoir. The Chinese forces quickly surrounded the US troops and forced them to fight a retrograde attack in order to fight their way out to friendly lines to the south. Due to poor Chinese intelligence on UN forces and logistical shortcomings the UN forces were able to evade total annihilation and were able to retreat to safety with the majority of their men and equipment intact.
A Japanese invasion that same year caused his forces to leave that country. a year after that he made many successful offensive operations against the Japanese military in that region.in 1945 president Harry S. Truman appointed MacArthur supreme allied commander. For the next six years he stayed in japan to command the occupation forces. When North Korean army invaded South Korea in 1950, he started to command the newly united nation’s forces. On April 11, 1951, Truman removed MacArthur from his command for insubordination. This made people in America very mad, but Truman stayed focused on keeping the conflict with North Korea a limited war. Americans started to understand that MacArthur’s recommendations might have led to a massively expanded war in
During the pivotal 1950 battle, 15,000 U.S. soldiers and Marines, alongside another 15,000 UN soldiers, fought through a force of 120,000 Chinese soldiers to reach the sea some 78 miles away. During the campaign, U.S. forces successfully evacuated 98,000 refugees while inflicting heavy losses on the Chinese army. The Marine Corps led the push against a numerically superior Chinese force. Chosin also called Changjin, campaign early in the Korean War, part of the Chinese Second Offensive (November–December 1950) to drive the United Nations out of North Korea. The Chosin Reservoir campaign was directed mainly against the 1st Marine Division of the U.S. X Corps, which had disembarked in eastern North Korea and moved inland in severe winter weather to a mountainous area near the reservoir. The campaign succeeded in forcing the entire X Corps to evacuate to South Korea, but the Chinese did not achieve their particular objective of isolating and destroying the 1st Marine Division. Instead, in a deliberate retrograde movement that has become one of the most-storied exploits in Marine Corps lore, the Marines turned and fought their way down a narrow vulnerable road through several mountain passes and a bridged chasm until they reached transport ships waiting at the coast.Following the successful landing of the X Corps at Inch’ŏn in September 1950, the United Nations Command under the direction of U.S. Pres. Harry S. Truman’s administration and the UN General Assembly, pursued the remnants of the communist Korean People’s Army into North Korea. On the orders of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, commander of all allied forces in the UNC, the U.S. Eighth Army crossed the 38th parallel the prewar border on October 7 and advanced up the western side of the Korean peninsula toward P’yŏngyang, the capital of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. At the same time, MacArthur redeployed the X Corps on amphibious ships around the peninsula to Korea’s east coast. The X Corps commanded by Maj. Gen. Edward M. Almond included the 1st Marine Division Maj. Gen. Oliver P. Smith, the 7th Infantry Division Maj. Gen. David G. Barr, and the 3rd Infantry Division Maj. Gen. Robert H. Soule. The

On June 25, 1950, communist North Korea invaded the United States ally South Korea. The United States and the United Nation forces headed to South Korea to help defend but are pushed back and practically pushed off the peninsula. General Douglas MacArthur stages a risky but successful counterattack at the port of Inchon. This counterattack helps South Korea push back North Korean forces back to the Yalu River. This causes communist China to enter the war. The war dragged on for many years and finally ended in 1953 with the help of the United States and the United
As the Cold War continued on, communist North Korea unexpectedly invaded its Southern counterpart on June 25, 1950, which was encouraged by the Soviet Union. By September 14, 1950, the United States, alongside the United Nations, helped defend South Korea from further attacks (Document C). Consequently, this led to the U.S. and the United Nations forces nearly being pushed off of the Korean peninsula. However, soon after this the U.S. decide to take more immediate action with General MacArthur on July 25. General MacArthur devised a plan to counterattack North Korea at port Inchon, though it was risky it was successful in the end, due to it pushing North Korea back towards the Yalu River near China. Finally, on July 27, 1953, the ongoing war was over (Document C). The Korean War is a good example of containment because NOT
Roosevelt became president he took charge and started pushing new laws that countless of businesses saw as threatening to their work. Republicans also disagreed with Roosevelt’s new ideas, arguing that this changes were not actually going to help prevent another economic crisis. Republicans and businesses joined forces to make new “anti-New Deal campaigns that expressed their resentment and fear of regulations, taxes, and unions.”(729) Even major businesses like National Association of Manufactures became “openly anti-New Deal” due to the disagreement of the “New Deal efforts to regulate [and] reform” their “enterprise.” Republicans and Businessman call the new AAA, Agricultural Adjustment Act, unconstitutional and saw it as “the end of democracy.” People even started calling Roosevelt “Stalin Delano Roosevelt” because the saw his views as communist and almost Dictatorship like. The Supreme Court ended up getting in between of the arguing, but it did not favor FDR due to the fact that the agreed with businesses naming the new NRA
Surprising the American Lt. General Matthew Ridgeway the Chinese army pushed them back the 38th parallel. President Truman wanted to end the way quickly so he told MacArthur (their strategist) to be more aggressive and to think of a way to counter the Chinese army. MacArthur told him that they needed to be defensive, but Truman getting the support of Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) he fired MacArthur. America hated Truman for doing this since MacArthur was seen as a war hero and would’ve been impeached if he was without support of JCS. Lt. General Matthew Ridgway took MacArthur’s place, also going on a sort of defensive and guerilla warfare type style. Keeping communists at bay with strong defenses and good fortifications while every so often sending
War broke out in the Communist state of Korea, splitting the country into North Korea and South Korea. Near the end of the war, General Douglas MacArthur, head of U.S. and U.N. forces, disputed President Truman and other leaders of America and their plan of “containment”, resulting in General MacArthur’s being relieved of his position and replaced with General Matthew B. Ridgeway. Consequently, the results of “containment” being fulfilled were the many casualties, $67 billion output during the war, and the numerous soldiers made prisoner of the enemy or abandoned in Communist incarceration camps. All of these insurrections were the result of the weakness of America in fighting
The United States geared up for a war against communism. Not more than a day after Seoul fell, the US had officially entered the war and had ground troops committed, an action backed by the U.N. At the beginning of the war the U.S. soldiers had little combat experience and they were in a foreign land. This was the reason for the mass casualties sustained by the U.S. “US Army casualties from June 25 through July 31, 1950 totaled 6,003: 1,884 Killed In Action, 2,695 Wounded In Action, 523 Missing In Action and 901 reported captured. Of these more than half were from the 24th Infantry Division- 3,610.”( Evanhoe, Ed. "The Korean War." The Korean War. N.p., n.d. Web. 16 Feb. 2012. <http://www.korean-war.com>.)
On 25 June 1950, North Korea forces launched a surprise invasion on South Korea under the command of Kim Il-sung and the North Korean People’s Army. During this time, the North Korean People’s Army forced through the 38th parallel and pushed through the unprepared Republic of Korea forces to the Southeast Pusan peninsula. The approximately 125 mile defensive perimeter was where United Nation forces withdrew to by August, 1950 and held that Southeast position of the peninsula. While UN forces were outnumbered, commanders were in search for a new course of action that would help skew the war in favor of them. It was then General of the Army Douglas MacArthur first envisioned his plan for what would become the Battle of Inchon.
