The Line

University Press of Kentucky

Intelligence reports of a buildup of the Chinese between Chip'yong-ni and Hongch'on were confirmed because of the attack on some of the 23d Infantry Regiment units in the Twin Tunnels area. From this base, the enemy is capable of attacking through the Han River Valley or through the Wonju road as both locations may be targeted on the UN communication lines that link the I and IX Corps with Pusan's supply base. Operation Roundup, which was prepared by X Corp's headed by General Almond, was approved by General Ridgway. This entailed how two of X Corps's ROK divisions to move to Hongch'on while the ROK III Corps advance to the east. Operation Thunderbolt continued to search for enemy operations and several attacks were experienced. It became apparent that the Chinese maintained a fifteen-mile-wide position south of Han to avoid direct artillery fire and observation.
