Anything, Anywhere, Anytime: Combat Cargo in the Korean War
William M. Leary (au)
At 0330 on June 25, 1950, the powerful North Korean People’s Army crossed the 38th parallel & smashed into the poorly equipped South Korean units that guarded the border between the two Koreas. Resistance soon collapsed, & Gen. Douglas MacArthur ordered the Far East Air Forces to assist in the evacuation of U.S. citizens from the South Korean capital of Seoul. The airlift on June 27th carried 748 people to safety. It quickly became clear that air transport would be necessary to deliver urgently needed supplies to the retreating ROK army. Unfortunately, airlift assets in the Far East were meager, but Maj. Gen. William Tunner conducted airlift operations. Here is a history of combat cargo in the Korean War. Maps & b&w photos.
