    ... by April 25, 1951, in the Cap'Yong Valley. Canadian, Australian and New Zealand troops, faced by overwhelming Chinese Forces heading for Seoul, stopped the spring offensive. The night of the 23 and 24th was particularly desperate for Canada's Princess Patricia regiment. They repeatedly called down artillery fire on their own positions, and held.

    Good stuff.

    There were a lot of Chinese! It reminds me of The Battle of the Imjin River and the defiance of the Gloucestershire Regiment.

    Good post. Kapyong is one of the great achievements of the post war Australian Army.
