Winter War

The brutal winter of 1950, with its below-freezing temperatures, deep snow, and howling winds, sorely tested Sailors and Marines operating in the Sea of Japan and in the mountains of North Korea. The weather was hard not only on the men but also on their ships, aircraft, and weapons. Still, Navy and Marine units decimated Chinese forces that attacked the U.N. command near Chosin Reservoir.
