Marching north in plunging temperatures, common Edward Almond's X Corps, which integrated a Marine department less than the capable management of normal Oliver Smith, encountered little resistance. yet hundreds of thousands of chinese language, who had infiltrated around the frozen Yalu River, have been mendacity in wait and may quickly capture tens of millions people troops.

Led by means of the Marines, an beaten X Corps evacuated the frigid, mountainous Chosin Reservoir vastness and fought a swarming enemy and treacherous snow and ice to arrive the coast. climate, terrain, chinese language firepower, and a 4,000-foot chasm made break out look most unlikely within the face of a vanishing Christmas. yet persistence and sacrifice prevailed, and the final troopships weighed anchor on Christmas Eve.
