‘IRON TRIANGLE’ OUTPOST PORK
CHOP HILL, KOREA 6 July 1953: At
1025 hours on the night of July 6th a massive artillery and mortar
barrage preceded an onslaught by 700 soldiers from the CCF 200th
Regiment, 67th Division. The sounds from the crashing shells concealed

as “a moving carpet of yelling, howling men--whistles and
bugles blowing, their officers screaming like women driving their
men uphill.” In a bunker CP just beneath the crest of the
hill Corporal Dale W. Cain heard his radio come alive with reports
of “enemy in large numbers”. Company A reported hand-to-hand
fighting in the trenches. The battle was fought in a driving monsoon
rain, making evacuation of the wounded difficult, as well as re-supply.
As the battle swayed back and forth, the Chinese made repeated
pushes to take the hill while both sides unleased a storm of artillery
fire upon the struggling soldiers. During the course of two days,
parts of four companies defended Pork Chop. At dawn on July 8th,
the rain ended for a time and the initial defenders were withdrawn.
The defenders counted nine enemy assaults during the night of
July 6-7. By 11 July General Taylor reluctantly decided to abandon
Pork Chop Hill. As had been the case on Old Baldy, Taylor could
not justify risking more lives for a hill that was of minimal
strategic significance. The armistice was finally just around
