Fifty years cannot dim the memory of that awful first winter of the Korean War, especially the evacuation of Hungnam-“the forgotten battle in the forgotten war.”
As an aide to our commander, Major General Ned Almond, I was an eyewitness to the bravery of America’s fighting men and their extraordinary humanitarianism and courage amid extremely heavy combat conditions and the most severe weather imaginable. In the face of rapidly advancing Chinese North Korean armies in subzero temperatures, units of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, and Merchant Marines fought off the enemy, saved one hundred thousand American young men, and rescued a comparable number of North Korean refugees who were fleeing from their own army and dictatorial government.
This is the story of that memorable time-Christmas 1950-when we were fighting a new war in a far-off land, a hot war in the first years of the Cold War. There was widespread belief that this war, as bad as it was from its very beginning only six months earlier, was also the prelude to a much wider war, one that might well eventually involve the United States and the Soviet Union on opposite sides of the fighting. And if that happened, could World War III be far behind?
