9780872498297: Miracle in Korea: The Evacuation of X Corps from the Hungnan Beachhead

A gross miscalculation of Chinese intentions and unwise deployment of troop units, along with sub-zero temperatures and malfunctioning weapons and equipment, brought the U.S. Tenth Corps to the brink of disaster. The Marine division, against overwhelming odds, broke free of Chinese encirclement and fought its way from the Chosin Reservoir to Chinhung-ni. In that forlorn village, 43 miles from the sea, the burden of holding off the Chinese army passed to the men of the untested 3d Infantry Division. In a series of skillfully executed withdrawals the 3d Division manned the perimeter defenses at Hungnam long enough to permit the withdrawal of 87,000 American and Republic of Korea troops, all of their equipment, and 86,000 civilians who wished to leave North Korea.
