Abstract:

As we prepare for the strategic challenges ahead, our experiences in the early days of the Korean War offer invaluable food for thought. This paper outlines the strategic decisions and results at the national, theater, and component command level. In particular, the paper examines the contribution made by Lieutenant General Walton H. Walker in overcoming significant challenges to hold off a North Korean Peoples Army attack long enough for MacArthur to conduct his amphibious turning movement at Inchon.
