A New Equation: Chinese Intervention into the Korean War

Colloquium on Contemporary History No. 3, 20 June 1990

Photo #: 80-G-420027 Inchon Invasion, September 1950

Four LSTs unload men and equipment while high and dry at low tide on Red Beach at Inchon, South Korea, 16 September 1950, the day after the initial landings there. USS LST-715 is on the right end of this group, which also includes LST-611, LST-845, and one other. Another LST is beached on the tidal mud flats at the extreme right. Note bombardment damage to the building in center foreground, many trucks at work, Wolmi-Do island in the left background, and the causeway connecting the island to Inchon. Ship in the far distance, just beyond the right end of Wolmi-Do, is USS Lyman K. Swenson (DD-729) (80-G-420027).
