Korean War - CCF Prisoners of War

Korean War - CCF Prisoners of War Government History Social Studies Tragedies and Triumphs

As Chinese forces (the "CCF") aided North Korea in a First-Phase assault, they faced little opposition.  An exception was in Sudong Gorge, along the east coast above Wonsan, where the Seventh Marines put up effective resistance.

Relieving the retreating ROK (Republic of Korea) 26th Regiment, the Seventh Marines fought the CCF 124th Division in very difficult, close-up combat conditions. 

Fighting man-to-man, the Seventh Marines inflicted considerable damage.  The two individuals depicted in the photo are CCF Prisoners of War which the Seventh Marines took during the November 2-7, 1950 attack.
