Battle of Maryang San, Korea
Take a look back in history this week:
3-8 October 1951: Battle of Maryang San, Korea
The First Battle of Maryang San, also known as the Defensive Battle of Maliangshan , was fought during the Korean War between United Nations (UN) forces—primarily Australian and British—and the Chinese communist People’s Volunteer Army.
The fighting occurred during a limited UN offensive by US I Corps, codenamed Operation Commando. This offensive ultimately pushed the Chinese back from the Imjin River to the Jamestown Line and destroyed elements of four Chinese armies following heavy fighting.
