Marine Corps History: The Battle Of The Chosin Reservoir
Carl | July 12, 2013
After pushing far into North Korea during November of 1950, Marines were cut off after the Chinese Communist Forces entered the war.
Despite facing a 10-divison force sent to annihilate them, Marines smashed seven enemy divisions in their march from the Chosin Reservoir.
The major significance of the retrograde movement was that Marines brought out all operable equipment, properly evacuated their wounded and dead, and maintained tactical integrity.
General Smith made a famous quote that stated: “We are not retreating, we are attacking in a different direction”.
