Violence overturns normal perspectives concerning the root explanations of violence and provides strategies for confronting it sooner or later.

Lynn Montross described Obong-ni Ridge, soon dubbed No-Name Ridge by the marines, as resembling “some huge prehistoric reptile,” 46 with its head overlooking Tugok and its long body sprawling southeast for a mile and a half. This giant serpent was to become the site of the marines’ bloodiest battle of the peninsula war. Lieutenant Colonel Harold S. M. on August 17. Time magazine correspondent James Bell watched the marines move up the hill and wrote: Hell burst around the leathernecks [marines] as they moved up the barren face of the ridge.

S. 5th Air Force, Navy, and Marines restricted enemy supply movements to the hours of darkness, and even then to a painfully slow pace on the backs of humans and animals. By the time the North Korean armies reached the Pusan Perimeter, they had lost some 58,000 troops. Most of their remaining 70,000 men — including many South Koreans who had been forcibly enlisted into their ranks — were exhausted, half-starved, and critically short of ammunition, clothing, and medical supplies. They lacked air and naval support, and the UN forces had reduced NKPA armor to about 40 tanks by August 4.

S. 5th Regimental Combat Team (RCT) and the 1st Provisional Marine Brigade arrived in Korea from Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, and Camp Pendleton, California, respectively. General Walker merged the two newly arrived units with the 24th and 35th Infantry Regiments of Major General William B. Kean’s 25th Infantry Division to form Task Force Kean. Walker, heartened by the new arrivals — and perhaps prematurely optimistic — decided to use the new task force in a limited offensive in the Masan sector.
