This chapter tells the story of how logistical support was organized for UNC forces in X Corps during the fighting south of the Soyang River. Maintaining the movement of critical supplies to the front lines and ensuring the rapid shift of reinforcements to threatened areas was essential to stopping the offensive. The Chinese selected the location for their attack because they did not believe that American firepower could overcome the mountainous terrain and limited road net, which would make ammunition resupplying difficult. The U.S. X Corps was able to win the supply battle and negotiate the terrain, leading to their resistance of the Chinese attack.
