Having allowed the N.Korean maneuver ellements to escape to the north, led to the hell bent rush to the Yalu, purportedly to destroy those fleeing NKPA, while ignoring sound tactical principles, complete absence of flank security, (the Taebok Mts. making that impossible), with that asshole Almond flying from one command to another cajoling and demanding a faster more reckless advance, while the Chinese, as ADVERTIZED, infiltrated through the Taeboks to eventually ambush and halt the UN
Forces. MacArthur and his minions didn't save lifes, they wasted them, and led their troops into the worst reversal since the Battle of the Bulge. They snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
With MacArthur relieved, and new blood in command, the demoralized force was re-vivified by a more agressive, but tactically sound Command Structure, and the Communist Forces were once again on the verge of defeat in mid 1951, when the Chinese, in an effort to save face and their sorry asses, asked Malik to secure UN pressure for "Peace Talks", Truman fell for it, the war dragged on, and what could have been won on the field of battle, was lost in the war of words. Now we face the prospect of a reprise....another Korean War.

Default IF it

hadn't been for Gen. O. P. Smith, CG of the lst Mar Div, then no one would have left the Chosin. The poor guys on the east side of it were wiped out cause they followed Almonds orders to the "T", and paid one helluva price. As to him and Willoughby, the G-2 for Mac., in my opinion ALL three were certified A## H###s. The head of G-2 for the lst Mar. Div, a Colonel flew to Tokyo and asked Willoughby directly about the Chinese and his reply was, "they were not there" and if they were it was only a few volunteers when he and Mac., knew better. As the Eight Army and the lst Mar. DiV. had them behind barbed wire. As to going on to the north and possibly to China as Mc. wanted too, I wasn't in favor of that at all, cause if that would have taken place then I wouldn't be here today. The life expectancy of a Machine Gunner on the lines, wasn't very long. And you are so correct at 30 below, 24/7, it gets damned cold in a fox hole!!!!

Hey Humper, haven't had an update from you lately. How you making out with the VA.
Famous last words from Almond; "you're not going to let a few Chinese Laundrymen stop you are ya?" Further proof you should never put stars on an anus. Good men died face down in the snow and mud because of his stupidity.
