  U.S. Navy Museum Cold War Gallery The Fight for Korea

A string of enemy victories early in the war cornered U.N. forces at the southeastern tip of the Korean Peninsula. In a daring counterstroke, 230 U.S. and allied naval vessels launched a massive amphibious assault far behind enemy lines at Inchon on September 15, 1950. Marine, Army, and South Korean troops stormed ashore and within a few weeks had retaken the South Korean capital of Seoul. Outflanked by this bold maneuver, the North Korean army fled in disorder across the 38th parallel.
