Defense of Changjin 28 Nov 1950

“On 28 November, Major Martin called X Corps Hq by radio link and advised the Corps of the enemy build-up about Hagaru-ri. He was directed to integrate his troops in the defense perimeter of Hagaru-ri. Since his troops were east of the river, he was assigned a defensive perimeter on the ridge east of the town. … As has already been indicated, Major Martin and the Marine officer with D Co 10th Engrs were killed during the Chinese attack on the hill beginning the night of 28 November. The situation on the hill disintegrated and by morning only the reverse slope of the nose above the road remained in our hands. Losses in the units on the ridge were heavy.”
