China Attacks South Korea - Korean War

China Attacks South Korea - Korean War Visual Arts Famous Historical Events Geography Government

On January 1st, 1951, Chinese forces (known as the "CCF"), supporting North Korea, crossed the 38th Parallel which divides North and South Korea.  Combined forces - totaling around 300,000 men - attacked along a 200-km front.

The Chinese encountered feeble opposition, at best, as they moved across the border.  Within a week of the attack, UN forces had retreated to the 37th Parallel.

These actions took place during the third phase (31 December 1950 - 8 January 1951) of China's assistance to North Korea during the Korean War.
