07.Incheon Landing Operation (Chromite) – Private Full Day Tour


South Korea was invaded by North Korea without any prior ultimatum at dawn of June 25, 1950 which was only 2 years after South Korea set up its own unfledged democratic government in the south of 38th parallel.  It’s the breakout of the tragic Korea War between South Korea and North Korea.
North Korean Communist Army supported by USSR defeated the unready S Korean Army so easily and quickly and advanced far down to River Nakdong in southern S Korean in only 1 month time, without facing any substantial resistance from S Korea.  At this last point in time when S Korean totally pushed and fell back having only small part of southern territory left unoccupied, UN decided to participate in Korean War and rushed into Korea and to set up last defend line along River Nakdong.
So the war dragged on along this last defend line for some time for both fighting back and forth, where UN led by US General Douglas MacArthur confidentially plotted and launched Incheon landing operation (Code Name : Chromite) on 15 September 1950 in an attempt to cut off the military logistics line of N Korean army just in the middle line of Korean peninsula and to do an enveloping attack to the N Korean army.
N Korean army, most of which were battling in the southern part of peninsular, were surrounded by UN landing forces and began to retreat and escape to the north before all were wiped out by UN forces.   So UN and S Korean could easily counter attack and advance far north to River Aprok on the border with China.
Success of Incheon landing Operation is so interpreted as the greatest victory in Korean War and more importantly as a tipping point to turn around the whole warfare situation to the advantage of the Allied Forces.  Incheon has tidal waters and so landing at the beaches of Incheon wasn’t an easy decision to take.  N Korean army never expected that ally would land at Incheon.  Great courage, insight and bold heartedness made this the most successful military maneuver even in the world war history.
