China Enters The
Some 200,000 CCF troops, mostly veterans of their great victories over Nationalist China, totally competent in fighting
of maneuver, ambush, and encirclement, infiltrated North Korea and took up their chosen areas of battle undetected. Our Eighth Army in
the West, and X Corps with our great 1st Marine Division in the East at Chosin, would soon be fighting for existence.
Yalu River, Andong, 10/14/50
334th Regiment, 119th Division, of
Fifteenth Chinese Field Army crosses the Yalu. The
CCF moved great numbers of battle-hardened veterans
into North Korea, undetected.
They didn't go unnoticed for
long ... they came to fight.
Causes of the Korean Tragedy ... Failure of Leadership, Intelligence and Preparation
The Foundations of Freedom are the Courage of Ordinary People and Quality of our Arms
