Our Korean War module dates back to August
20, 1997 (as per the postmark on the parcel sitting on my desk
as I type this) and that's a long wait in the file cabinet. The
wait is over ... and the module is coming as the core material
in the new CH Annual 4! The module's scenarios include:
>> High ground near Osan, 27 September
>> Chonui, 10 July 1954: The North
Koreans continued to sweep aside American roadblocks, leading
with tanks or flanking with infantry. Three M24's of the 78th
Tank Battalion supporting the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry positions
at Choniu attempted to delay NKPA armor. 'Rebel's Roost' would
be the first UN tank to engage enemy forces in Korea...
>> Obong-Ni Ridge, 17 August 1950:
The 8th Army had issued an operational directive to the 24th Infantry

17 September 1950: At 0630 hours on the 15th, the 3/5 Marines
landed on Wolmi-Do beach and at 0646 three LCU's (Landing Craft
Utility boats) disgorged the first tanks of Company 'A', 1st Marine
>> Near Kumch'on, 23 September 1950:
The 24th Infantry Division had jumped off, driving up the Taejon-Seoul
highway with three regiments in echelon. The plan was to rotate
a fresh regiment into the vanguard at intervals, with the 21st
Infantry in the lead. The North Koreans, with dug-in remnants
of the 10th Armored Division, camouflaged and behind minefields
