Korean War: In 1951, North Korean and Chinese forces, in the Chinese Third Offensive (December 31, 1950–January 5, 1951) retook Seoul, the capital city of South Korea. The Chinese attacks centered on ROKA divisions, which were showing signs of defeatism and ineptness. US Army Lieutenant General Matthew Ridgway, therefore, had to rely in the short term upon his US divisions, many of which had now gained units from other UN participants. In addition to two British Commonwealth brigades, there were units from Turkey, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Greece, Colombia, Thailand, Ethiopia, and the Philippines.
