    Battles p2 Rosie.
    ...
    5th was the North KoreansKorean against South
    On November 1st China launched the first Chinese offensive against the UN forces. The Eighth Army retreated. Then on November 25th the CCF attacked the Eighth Army, the second Chinese offensive. The UN is starting to get really close to the 38 parallel. The third Chinese offensive was on January first 1951. The UN gets pushed back 50 miles from the 38 parallel.
    Febuary 11, 1951 was when China counter attacked Ridgway's patrols in the battle of Chipyong-ni. The UN won that battle and many Chinese died. On April 21st, 1951 the UN got involved in a three day battle with China and North Korea. The UN won. There are some battles of the Korean war.
    ...
    Another Battle like Bloody Ridge was Heartbreak Ridge. These battles were near each other. This battle was on September 13, 1951. The South Koreans won. This was the bloodiest battle with a total of 25,000 people killed. These were some of the battles of the Korean
    War.
    All of this infomation about these battles is very important because if you know about the past you will be ready for the future. For example the Koreans wer't trying to kill us but injur the U.S. and South Korea. They injured us because it would take more people out of the army. During the time we didn't know what the North Kreans and China were trying to do to the U.S. and South Korea because the U.S. have never fought anything llike that before. That is why knowing about the Korean battles is important.

    The importance of my topic is that the Korean War shaped our world.The outcomes are the most important part because
    they have given territory, partially stopped communism, and saved a lot of peoples lives. Also, the Vietnam War was an outcome of the Korean War. It showed that there was no stop of communism and that other countries were divided as well.

    China's role in the war was an important one at that. China was not involved in the war at first. The Korean war started on June 25,1950. China did not enter the war until October 2, 1950. General MacArthur of the U.S. decided that the Republic of Korea (ROK) troops, not the Americans, march up to the border of China to show that the U.S. was not trying to threaten the Chinese. The Chinese were threatened that ROK and the Americans were going to attack them. Zhou Enlai, the Chinese leader, told the ambassador of India that if the Americans were to pass the 38th parallel, that the Chinese would enter the war.

    Throughout the Korean war the Chinese were a powerful source. China helped out in many ways. They kept the Americans out of Korea for most of the war. China was on the North Korean side, they demonstrated loyalty and supporrt for their country and stayed with Soviet Union the whole war.

U.N. forces tried to take over a series of hills which was being used as look out posts to call for gun fire on a U.N. supply road. On September 5th, the North Koreans abandoned the ridge after UN forces succeeded in out fighting it. There were 2,700 U.N. and maybe as many as 15,000 communists had casualties!

    When Ridgway was given command of the UN forces, the Chinese entered the war and sided with North Korea due to the pact they made with Kim Il Sung. Chinese-North Korean forces had taken back Pyongyang and advanced over the 38th parallel. The Communist Army was headed towards Seoul and Ridgway took action, he defeated the Communist army, liberated Seoul from China and advanced as far as 38th parallel. President Truman then launched diplomatic negotiations, and a truce line was drawn between North and South Korea on top of the 38th parallel.

    settle the unifcationunification of Korea,
    There were 4 million military and civilian casualties. 33,600 Americans, 16,000 UN allies, 415,000 South Koreans, 520,000 North Koreans and 900,000 Chinese (estimated).The North Koreans rabid with communist indoctrination saw the South as an enemy. Thus, from our perspective, it was a successful defense of South Korea's territory.
    The war was a deadlock. North and South Korea were not happy at all with what was going on.When the war did end it wasnot that far from where the war started.Korea remained divided between a Communist North a non-Communist (and relatively free) South, with the dividing line between them almost exactly where it was before.
