Military Photo: Astonished Marines

Posted: 01/01/2018

THE ROAD BACK – Astonished Marines of the 5th and 7th Regiments, who hurled back a surprise onslaught by three Chinese Communist divisions, hear that they are to withdraw. In five days and nights of below-zero winds and icy roads, from Nov 28 to 3 Dec, they fought back 15 miles through Chinese hordes to Hagaru-ri, on the southern tip of Chosin Reservoir, where they reorganized for the epic, 40 mile fight down mountain trails to the sea. They brought out their wounded and their equipment. Photo by Sgt F. C. Kerr
