The chapter examines three actions on the U.S. IX Corps's sector that were intended to stabilize the front and push back against the anticipated renewal of the Chinese Spring Offensive. After regrouping and resupplying, the Chinese launched the second phase of their Spring Offensive. After the first round of battles, UN forces were able to break contact and withdraw while the Chinese were forced to deal with heavy casualties. After this withdraw, Lt. Gen. Van Fleet drew a new defensive line, the No Name Line, at which field fortifications were constructed and bases were established. As the Chinese enemy regrouped, new attacks were launched at the No Name Line and forces from the U.S. IX Corps provided support and defended regiments.
