the Korean War as pointless, American determination and strength proved that a
well-armed and supported force can prevent a vastly superior sized aggressor
from achieving victory. Out-numbered two-to-one, American forces inflicted seven

of hostilities the Chinese Communists gained nothing more than a desolate hill
upon which to bury their 1,500 dead. Lieutenant General Arthur G. Trudeau:
