Storyboard Text

  • Troops! We are joining the South Korean forces near Pusan. We will defeat North Korea!
  • Today, we need to catch the North Koreans off guard. We will attack near Inchon and drive them north past the 38th parallel.
  • President Truman, I ask permission to allow troops to pursue North Korean forces north of the 38th parallel.
  • Yes, but do not engage Soviet or Chinese forces.
  • General MacArthur and his troops joined the South Korean forces that were backed up in Pusan, near the southernmost part of South Korea. 
  • Troops! Get ready to advance!
  • MacArthur knew that confronting the North Koreans at Pusan would be difficult and costly. So he launched a large-scale assault on the rear of the North Korean lines near Inchon. They were surprised by his bold strategy and were caught unprepared. The North Korean troops suffered heavy casualties and were driven north of the 38th parallel.
  • No! The Chinese and Soviets aren't supposed to intervene.
  • The United Nations and President Truman were skeptical of allowing MacArthur and his troops to proceed. They agreed with the condition of not engaging with Soviet or Chinese forces.
  • MacArthur boldly advances into North Korean with the goal to end the war.
  • MacArthur didn't plan for the Chinese and Soviets to directly intervene and the Americans became overextended and suffered heavy losses.
  • The North Koreans drove back MacArthur to the 38th parallel and MacArthur was forced to call Washington and claim defeat.
