China Enters The Korean War

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.

The Enemy

The Chinese Intervene

Yalu River, Andong

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.
