November 29, This day during the Korean War

November 29, 1950 – At dawn the CCF 40th Army attacked in force against the Turks. It soon became clear the Ch’ongch’on defense line could not be held so a general withdrawal of all units back to the Sunch’on line was ordered. For the Turks and the 2nd ID the order came late because several CCF regiments had already infiltrated south of Kunu-ri and taken up positions on the high ground overlooking the only road the division could use to withdraw. To their west I Corps began withdrawing down the Anju-Sunch’on-P’yongyang highway without opposition.
