Gents: I am currently researching/writing on the massacre of the US 2nd Infantry Divsion in their attempt to break through a six-mile fire block at Kunu-ri Pass (North Korea, Winter 1950). This remains the worst disaster suffered by the US Army in the years since 1945. The slaughter appalled British troops holding open - against considerable Chinese pressure - the southern end of the pass: the MO of the Middlesex, inundated with American wounded, subsequently suffered a nervous breakdown, and those interviewees I have spoken to recall it with brilliant clarity 60 years later. Here is what one of the most competent British company commanders, Major David Wilson, 1 Argylls, had to say about it: "2 regts of US 2nd Div withdrew through Kunu-ri in Motor Transport and they tried to drive through by day and they were massacred. I have never seen trucks coming with blood running out of the scuppers before. Command and control had completely gone and two regts were very nearly wiped out. It was a dreadful business. Midsex was sent up to hold the pass- had quite a sticky time too, but again did not make the mistake of trying to drive through the enemy. Strangely enough, there was a historical parallel on NW Frontier in 1937 when a road bound column was caught in very much same conditions not such a big column and was absolutely massacred by the tribes. Motto: Donât try and drive through mountain passes with enemy on either side" (Note: I am quoting Wilson's Imperial War Musuem interview transcript here) Does anyone know of the incident in the Northwest Frontier Wilson is referrrig to here? FYI, Wilson was an Argylls officer, and had served in India prior to WWII. Thanks in advance for any info/leads, either on this thread or via PM. FYI, the writing/research is for "Scorched Earth, Black Snow: The Commonwealth vs Communism, Korea, 1950" due for publication next spring.
