1stMarDiv, 11/50, The Division Moves Into Chosin

Mission: Cross Taebaek Mountains To Link Up With Eighth Army.

Problem: Eighth Army would be running for its life before the Marine attack even began, and Twelve CCF Divisions were moving to trap 1stMarDiv, itself.

The M26 Pershing heavy tank, and the water cooled .30 caliber MG would both see desperate action before those of these Marines who survived would fight their way back out of the trap.
