ABSTRACT
The article reports on the initiatives by the Chinese communists during their offensive against the United Nations (UN) forces, which is led by the U.S., in Korea in mid-December 1950. Noted for their sluggishness, the Chinese failed to deliver their follow-up offensive that is expected by the Eight Army, headed by lieutenant general Walton Walker. The delay also allowed for the successful evacuation of the 60,000 soldiers of major general Edward M. Almond in Hungnam, North Korea.
