The Chinese Counteroffensive in Korea November, 1950 to May, 1951Yalu, by award-winning game designer John Hill, recreates the Communist Chinese assault on the United Nations forces in North Korea, in the winter of 1950. Led by General Douglas MacArthur, UN troops are out of position and over-extended when the Chinese launch their surprise attack, overrunning flanks and swarming over defensive positions. Reeling back toward the 38th Parallel, the UN forces fight for their very survival. The bug-out operation is nearly catastrophic for the US 8th Army and it narrowly escapes annihilation. The resulting retreat is the longest in US military history! The Spring of 1951 brings US airpower, infantry replacements, artillery and tank support to the battered UN forces. After their great success and advances, the Chinese troops have outrun their logistics with food and ammunition being carried on foot or bicycle all the way from the Yalu River. Yalu simulates the struggle of these two great armies, each employing different types of warfare. The Chinese have surprise, a wealth of well disciplined a highly trained soldiers, but rely upon brittle supply chain. UN forces have immense firepower, are highly mobile, and well supplied. Which doctrine shall triumph?
