By the last week of May, the UNC and Eighth U.S. Army launched a counteroffensive even before the second phase of the Chinese Spring Offensive was over. The chapter eplains Task Force Gerhart (in the X Corps) and the hard fight of the 72d Tank Battalion up Route 24 to retake the road and the crossings of the Soyang River at Umyang-ni. General Van Fleet sensed the enemy was off balance and ordered counterattacks, which spread as the enemy withdrew.
