U.N. troops, largely from the U.S. and Japan and commanded by General Douglas MacArthur, landed at Inchon on 15 September and launched a counterattack. The operation involved some 75,000 troops and 261 naval vessels, and led to the recapture of the South Korean capital Seoul two weeks later. Initial success brought the U.N. troops to the Chinese border by late November 1950, but on 29 November, China entered the conflict and pushed the U.N. forces southward. Seoul fell again on 4 January 1951. Another U.N. counteroffensive in February and March drove the North Korean and Chinese troops back to the 38th parallel. Despite much bloody fighting, the battle lines remained stable for another two years. As the fighting moved up and down the peninsula, ravaging the land, there were an estimated three million casualties. Armistice talks began in July 1951 but repeatedly failed to reach agreement. A truce was signed on 27 July 1953 establishing a demilitarized zone along the 38th parallel and creating a framework for a permanent settlement of the war. Talks have continued fruitlessly ever since.

Building a tank requires a long lead time. Thousands of parts must be manufactured and assembled. Specialized tools and dies are required, as are skilled engineers and workers. Because of the extensive time required to retool and reenergize American tank production during the Korean War, more troops were using the World War II vintage Sherman tank than the newer M-46 "Patton" as late as October 1952. The M-46 was not a new tank from the ground up. It was simply a new turret mated to existing M-26 hulls. Had the Army not been in the process of converting 800 M-26s into M-46s, it is likely that only World War II era tanks would have reached the battlefield prior to 1953.

Late in 1967, with 485,600 U.S. troops in Vietnam, Westmoreland announced that,although much fighting remained, a cross-over point had arrivedin the war of attrition; that is, the losses to the NVA and Vietcong were greater thanthey could replace. This assessment was debatable, and there was considerable evidencethat the so-called "other war" for political support in South Vietnam was notgoing well. Corruption, factionalism, and continued Buddhist protests plagued the Thieu-Kygovernment. Despite incredible losses, the Vietcong still controlled many areas. Adiplomatic resolution of the conflict remained elusive. Several third countries, such asPoland and Great Britain, offered proposals intended to facilitate negotiations. Theseformulas typically called upon the United States and DRV to coordinate mutual reduction oftheir military activities in South Vietnam, but both Washington and Hanoi firmly resistedeven interim compromises with the other. The war was at a stalemate.

The Korean War, described by many, including then President Harry S

Sandler mentions the North Korean use of loudspeakers and their unsophisticated messages: "You have expended all your left-over equipment from World War II. It will start costing you to continue," "You should play it safe and stay inside," and "You are merely tools for capitalist gain." In one case the Communists even used a sexy female voice that said, "Come on over and surrender. I will give you a good time." He quotes one entire loudspeaker script:

10 Facts About the Korean War - Mental Floss

As you can see, there isn't a great deal of difference in percentage casualty rates between Civil War battles and battles of 150 years before. Although there aren't a great deal of mid to late 19th century European battles to compare to, it is clear that casualty rates were lower than earlier battles, often much lower. This indicates that later wars like the Austro-Prussian War and the Franco-Prussian War, rather than the Civil War, were significantly different - more modern than wars of the past. Later, we'll gain insight about the tactics of the 18th century and the Napoleonic Wars - and to study their evolution. After all, that is exactly what Civil War commanders did.
