Show Summary Details


This chapter follows the operations of Battery B, 999th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, in its efforts to support the Republic of Korea 1st Division during the opening days of the Spring Offensive. A Communist attack hit the ROK 1st division of the US 1 Corps hard and the Armored Field Artillery Battalion, an African American organization, reinforced the unit. The extensive accounts of the ambush and response, coupled with maps and illustrations, provide a complete picture of the Battery B unit, which continued to be an effective fighting organization even after the attack.
