about

It is the story of the 24th Division’s Naktong River crossing with which this thesis is concerned. In writing an account of the 24th Division’s crossing, the historian cannot detract from the praise due the officers and men of the division who sacrificed so much in crossing the Naktong River barrier; neither can he omit the roles played by the non-divisional troops who supported the crossing. Likewise, he should not disregard the adjacent units’ actions that materially assisted the 24th Division in accomplishing its mission. For these reasons, I have chosen to relate the 5th Regimental Combat Team’s attack on Waegwan and the 5th Cavalry Regiment’s attack to secure the Taegu-Waegwan highway. Both of these operations were vital to the 24th Division’s success; the first cleared the enemy from the east bank of the river and the second secured a main supply route for the division.
