On November 27, 1950, eight Chinese Communist divisions in Korea launched a massive attack intended to destroy the 1st Marine Division. This led to one of the most well-known chapters in Marine Corps history as the Marines successfully fought their way southward out of Chosin Reservoir to the coastal port of Hungnam.

The Marines were besieged when the Chinese entered the Korean War November 27, 1950, by sending 200,000 shock troops against Allied forces.
